Chains by onewing

Chains

No wonder the posts and chains are rusted with all the salt spray on them. This is at Nobby's beach in Newcastle, but I don't know what they actually do. There must be some purpose for them.

Cool shot. Love the lines

Maybe it's there to keep the seals out :)

great pic Babs - not for tying up boats perchance??
June 23rd, 2014  
Wow Babs this is an awesome image.
June 23rd, 2014  
Probably to warn you not to get too close to the edge ... but a camera in the hand cancels out such messages doesn't it?
June 23rd, 2014  
great shot :)

They make a great curved line in the photo, and it looks so interesting. Great shot.

Wonderful leading lines and super rust Babs!

Great lines and what a lot of rust. Something to do with tying up boats maybe?

Very cool capture....curious though? For tying up boats??
June 23rd, 2014  
good idea Gena, great lines
June 23rd, 2014  
I love the name Nobby's beach.....used to go out with a lad whose nickname was Nobby. A nice row of posts & chains to keep the edge a little safer!

A beautiful capture Babs !
June 23rd, 2014  
What a super lead line. This is such a simple scene but I could look at your photo all day.

Love this - fav! Fabulous leading lines of both the posts and the curve of the wall. And all that fabulous rust!!

I love the symmetricalness! (I sincerely hope that is a word!) Oh, and I love the water! FAV

Perhaps they're for chaining bogans to when they misbehave? Love the shot Babs, great leading lines.

Trying to catch up. Next time I am in Newcastle I must try and find out what the chains were for. At the top of this picture you can see the ocean and to the left are the rock pools. then to the right there is a man made structure which is a paddling pool for kids and just behind where I took the photo are the ocean baths which I have taken a picture of before. So maybe the chains date back to before the pool was built. If I find out I will keep you posted. @golftragic I like your idea Marnie. Not very PC, but it works for me ha ha.
June 25th, 2014  
@golftragic @onewing great idea Marnie! Perhaps it could also be introduced in QLD. LOL
June 25th, 2014  
@net Why not go nationwide? I'm sure the 'law and order' lobby would approve - and they wouldn't be alone.

@golftragic modern day stocks I guess!
