How the other half live....

By NDODS    
Well, it was a bit of a roller coaster day yesterday in relation to the comments and critiques. I certainly gleaned a lot of information from fellow members regarding that particular image, and the way I perceive different aspects of life on the site.

Todays image was captured on a rather dull and overcast day at Chatham Marina, home to both money and snobbery, both of which I detest.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead for me I am off too Leatherhead in Surrey for some treatment for a couple of days, so I shall be off the site until Saturday.

Regards as always

Nathan GrinGrinGrin

A beautiful capture Nathan, love the stormy clouds... a bit unfair to detest all rich people, some people inherit their wealth but others work bloody hard for their money and hence wealth, my husband has worked hard since school, university and all his working life to give us a home similar to the scene above...sorryBlush fortunately he is not a snob, just a regular guy like the next

A beautiful scene Nathan.
I think rich people have their troubles too and they can't buy health either,
so I never envy or hate the rich except maybe Donald Trump!!!!!!!!

I worked for a very wealthy man once - and he wanted more and more and more..... with the result he was unhappy, so I feel no need to detest the wealthy. They just have a different lifestyle from ours and happiness and health is everything (as you know all too well). Smile Good luck today Nathan.

Don't tar all people with the same brush.
I lived with my late husband on a 36 foot yacht.for well over 5 years
We loved living with the elements....
Not all boat owners are rich and snobs....
It helped that we were living in the Nederlands

The sky looks a bit like this here right now! A fine capture and presentation, Nathan, with some nice reflections Smile
I can confirm that Barbara isn't a snob! Wink Can't say I like them....but I am quite partial to the money bit and can always find it a good home...

As a photograph I think it is excellent with that brooding sky. What a pity that the planners allowed those two monstrous skyscrapers to be erected.

Something about the "feel" of this image apeals greatly to me... I think it's the heavy low clouds accented by the "spikes" of the boats masts and the two linerar buildings on show...
Well seen Nathan!
14 Aug 2013 5:32AM
This image has a special feeling due to those reflections. Even the clouds are flected from the water ! Beautiful!---- I hope the treatments go well !!!! The very best regards from Finland,and be back soon! ---- Jukka.

Gosh...the detail in this is WONderful, Nathan. Lovely light on the boats too. I think the overcastness has made them stand out!

I detest snobberishness...

...but I can't say I detest money! Bit hard getting photo gear without it Wink I do detest not having more, though Grin
