Locked!

Entrusted, encrusted, and rusted.

The Middle Docks in South Shields are being dismantled and demolished to make way for new riverside developments. I was attracted by the colours and textures of this chain and padlock, the only post processing here is a little sharpening (although it is not too apparent in it's compressed form.)

Lovely photo. I love the colors. Well done.
 
Shame about the docks. Another piece of Britain's heritage confined to the landfill. I've never seen a padlock like that before.
 
Ouch !!!!!!!!!
Wonderful, PERFECT. What to say : a shot i would like to have done. That yellow rubber cover is a plus !

Such a pity we can't see it bigger :-)
