Barging about

I love the details on these old barges, finding the interplay of shapes and textures an endlessly fascinating aesthetic as well as functional.

Especially so on a bright and sunny, winter day (probably the only one this winter or at least it feels like it).

While I find interest in the fine detail, the overall picture is pretty nice as well.

  1. Details are something that was produced in spades in the old days. The last time I was in London I took a photograph of an old drain grating in a street in central London - it was only a drain grate but also a detailed piece of Victorian art!

    This barge looks like it is of Dutch origin?
