Recently I made an exploratory photo walk in and around the Houthaven (Wood harbor) in Amsterdam and had a lot of fun. (Note the photos Google maps is using here are pretty outdated, since the area is under development.)

Since we’re done with the bitts now, I’ll show some other ship details, before moving on to the things lines and cables are fastened to in the land side.

Actually, the ship where I shot the Line is the same as where I shot the Wet bitt. It was incredibly brightly colored, mostly that vivid yellow and an equally vivid orange.

Here, we see that bright yellow and orange in combination, with a bit of a ladder to climb up to a higher deck.

    Oh loving the colors and it looks so great in the black matte!!!!

  • Thank you yet again for a lovely comment and fave!

    I was surprised to find such vivid colors on ‘working’ ships – maybe I was just lucky, I’ll have to go back for another batch to find out!

    Great composition…those handles are cool.

  • Thank you very much, Lynne!

    Such vertical ladders aren’t all that easy to climb (if it’s more than three steps, at least) – it takes a bit of practice. :)

    Mooie foto shots weer Marjolein!!!
    de paaltjes vondt ik minder maar dat is denk ik een kwestie van persoonlijke smaak :)

    Kind Regards,
    Amsterdam, The Netherlands

  • Ja, die “paaltjes” (bolders) zijn meer voor de liefhebbers van ‘heavy metal’ ;)
    Blij dat je deze mooi vindt, Erik! En bedankt voor de fave.
