Yellow Bollards, 2009


Yellow Bollards
1/4000 sec at f/5

A corral of retired bollards, remnants of Red Hook’s hard working maritime past. A bollard is a short wooden, iron or stone post used on a quayside for mooring ships. Mooring bollards are seldom exactly cylindrical, but typically have a larger diameter near the top to discourage mooring warps (docklines) from coming loose. For more info visit: http://bit.ly/Xbbmj
