SOOC10 Surf lifesavers bollards

Some of the several hundred of these well-known bollards that adorn Geelong's waterfront and other places. Today's shots flopped, this one taken a couple of weeks ago but sooc and with 35mm lens.
Well find. Great pov. I think I would prefer colored. At one time, the photo was received in the darkroom, where there was a lot to change. In this challenge, we give jpg from the camera and a little bit of this finish.

Very much like your perspective.

@haskar I like the colour version too, but preferred the b&w this time.

@joysabin Thanks Joy, I was very lucky. About five minutes later a whole busload of Chinese tourists arrived and swarmed all over everything taking selfies.

@golftragic Those shots would have been fun too.

Great image Marnie! Made me smile! Lovely b&w conversion!

Those guys are ready to run the reel out and perform a rescue. Great image.

They are cute. Do they have a purpose or just pretty?
September 10th, 2018  
They look cool! As to life saving, I fear they work a bit like my stone life-jackets... ;)

Great shot

They are really quirky :)

Recognised them straight away :) Love 'em!!

I loved seeing the bollards when we were in Geelong last year. They're so well done :)

@joysabin If you could get near enough to get a shot!

@pamknowler Thanks Pam, the bollards are a great tourist attraction. BTW, this isn't actually a conversion, I have my camera currently set to take RAWs in colour and JPEGs in b&w (two SD card slots), so I'm able to have my cake and eat it too.

@dide I find some of the bollards better than others, I liked this group, she really got the feel here.

@dibzgreasley Just decorative. There are several hundred of them, all different and tourists flock here to see them.

@domenicododaro An apt analogy!!

@777margo thanks
September 11th, 2018  
@hermann Yes, in a nice way, of course.

@gilbertwood I thought you might! They're always good for a shot or two. I took a shot of the Nellie Melba one at Avalon I haven't yet posted.

@merrelyn What a pity I wasn't following you then, we could've had coffee and a goss.
September 11th, 2018  
@golftragic That would have been lovely :)
September 11th, 2018  
@merrelyn Just what I thought!
September 11th, 2018  
@golftragic I got a great shot of the brolly girls with the musicians a few years ago - one of my favourite shots :)
September 11th, 2018  
@gilbertwood That would've been fun. Somehow we need to have a get-together with you and the brolly girls. Thinking, thinking …
September 11th, 2018  
@golftragic .....keep thinking - there's bound to be a plan somewhere, some time :)
