No Catch

By woolybill1
An angling shadow from Cromer Pier.

Thanks to all who have commented and criticised, laughed or cried, on or at my most recent uploads. We actually got back well before tea yesterday; however, since it was Friday, someone called McAfee took over my computer for nearly five hours before (a) deciding that there was as usual nothing wrong with it, and (b) graciously allowing me to play again. Such is the price of Security, I know, but it is always so damned SLOW.

So, welcome back to cyberspace WinkWink
I thought this was a watering can initially WinkWink
Well spotted and captured Bill - hopefully you were not the only one who caught something with this fishing tackle GrinGrin

Hi Ho, Hi Ho it's off to work we go...

No? oh well it was my first thought, one of the 7 dwarfs stepping out.

Nicely composed with the diagonals from the planking and thr shadows cutting across. Looks like it maybe a fishing reel from the previous comment, but fish comes for me on a plate or in a poke with chips.

I like this idea much better than the rather more mundane reality. Nicely composed image with great textures and a fun shadow.
O yes pc can be a pain in the ... but we love them when they work ok. I had to work it out from the thumbnail I thought it was your camera on a mono pod, better go to have my eyes tested I think. creative with a good idea Bill well spotted.

This looks like a rather quirky watering can. I'm glad you explained, me having no knowledge of fishing and tackle whatsoever. Smile

A superb shadow saturday image Bill, I'm not a big fan of McAfee or Norton, I'd recommend Avast or Nod both of which provide free antivirus software
