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 (Note the photos Google maps is using here are pretty outdated, since the area is under development.)
The friendly pier (as I’ve come to think of it) not only had these welcoming little creatures and awesome spirals, but also a nice collection of ‘heavy metal’.
What, exactly, happened here to create this awesome pattern? It looks as though some giant hand gripped and squeezed this bollard in the pier so hard with a patterned hand, that it went right through the thick coat of paint into the heavy steel. Yes, it is the right way up – this is where I found it:
