There's so much history gradually disintegrating here, on both sides of the river. Good one.

Loads to take in in this scene of riverside dereliction: the boat and it's surroundings do make an interesting subject and the head on 'take' on the boat with it placed centrally is I guess deliberate, John, although it tends to produce an image of two halves for me.
I'd be interested in your own comment on this observation, although as I say I feel you have done this with consideration having sought out that viewpoint.
Ronnie.

Especially when Andy left for the richer pastures of Old Trafford!!

Interesting comment by Ronnie. As it stands the image is of the wider view with the boat part of it. Crop the left, put the boat on a 'third' and the image is the boat with a background. Both equally effective to me.

I don't go a lot on placing anything in the middle as a rule, but this is IMO an exception,I wanted to show not just the coal industry which has gone but the ship building(Swan hunters ) also the fish quay it is still there JUST not as it was very few trawlers operate now from there now .This boat sums up the great ship builders that we once had now it downs to this. Thanks for asking Ronnie.

I think you have to know this area very well and know just how much has gone from view at either side of the boat. I think John was probably trying to tell the wider story than make the image artistically correct.
