The Weekend in Black and White


This week I have three photos to show, all taken in Donegal Town.

This old anchor, now holding someone's jacket, has been chained down as a reminder of earlier times.





I'm sorry that I won't be available to visit until Sunday at the earliest, but I'll get around you all as soon as I can.

What an interesting old anchor.

Anchors can mean a lot - this was a very historical (and to me )and new one.

Nice little bit of history there.

These are beautiful. The tonal range is perfect, especially in the center image

I love these images! The subject is powerful and draws you in with curiosity.

I like the angle in the first picture. The anchor looks so huge! In the second photo I love the light and the shadows on the pavement.

That anchor is so huge and clearly so heavy! A great street feature! Love the details in these photos!

Thanks again for jogging the memories of our visits to Ireland. The County Donegal area is a beautiful part of the country. Your shots of the anchor with the inscriptions and history lesson were so interesting. Please keeps haring your wonderful photos. I enjoy them so much.

It's an old anchor with a very special story. Great photos!

Kitty said...

They have indeed chained it down...I can't help thinking, though, that if someone really wanted to steal a massive anchor, a little chain would be no obstacle!

Wow, that was quite a piece of history! The remnants of war still leave most of us in introspection.

This piece in BW made it appear surreal!

I love history so loved these photo's!! I was born near Chatham, when it was a Naval dockyard, and my dad was in the royal navy for 22 years- in Chatham they had an enormous anchor as part of a town art display, but it was a modern one so not quite as interesting as this one! Your photo's took me back, though- thanks!!!

Beautiful shots, as always.

Ahhh, the spoils of war... always interesting to read anecdotes about other countries with so much more history than my own Singapore
