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 (Note the photos Google maps is using here are pretty outdated, since the area is under development.)

I’m always fascinated by the variety of things used to fasten a boat or ship to something stable like a wharf, a jetty or the sea bottom – both the iron or wooden shapes to fasten them to and the lines, anchor lines, and anchor chains to fasten them with.

A little intermezzo…

While hunting around for bitts (the shipside thingies to fasten lines and cables to) I just couldn’t help but notice one ship that had a large part of its hull painted shiny black – it made an awesome mirror!

Of course, when it’s so shiny, I should be able to see myself in the ‘mirror’…
