Taken March 30th

One thing I enjoy is walking along the harbour and taking pics of all the boats. Sadly that might not be possible much longer. The city in its infinite wisdom is going to put up a fence to keep everyone out of the area. They cite security concerns but that is just crazy. We're a small port, nothing ever happens here, we are remote, etc. It's very sad and disheartening that they are cutting off access to a public area that we have enjoyed for centuries.

Love the bold colors of red, white, and blue that are touched by time with rust. Hope those fences didn't go up - it is amazing how sometimes officials/owners are so afraid of being sued or thoughts of security that they bow to the fear rather than the real facts of reality that may not support those fears.

So did a fence actually go up? I hope not. This is a beautiful capture of something so simple. Probably something that is maybe taken for granted.

Beautiful combination of colors, composition and nicely seen detail. Living in a landlocked country I miss having scenes like this nearby... fence or not :).

Wonderful color and texture. And yes, very sad about the whole fence thing.

A heartbreaker about the fence! Get as many more like this as you can. Beautiful!

Fun colors and composition. Bummer about the proposed fence. Security is an excuse for some ridiculous things these days ::sigh::

Very cool composition, almost abstact. The contrasting colors and the different textures throughout give this one a lot of staying power.

Oh, that would really be sad, Karen. I love the design elements and textures in this nautical abstract.

Love the photo. Lots of interesting detail to inspect. Sorry the officials are limiting access to a public area. I hate the trend of removing citizens' rights on the premise of increased security.
