A whole lot of Paddy's Hole

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

It's a shithole really with all the rubbish floating around and sunken craft but it still fascinates.

It wouldn't be Paddy's if it were all spic and span Sam but at least most of the rubbish is moved around now and again. Just reminded me,i still have one to upload from here.

My eyes have been here before Lex and the composition very similar to this earlier upload . It's a place I love so I just had to try again with my new toy :o) Cheers mate !

Not just us Richard, the place almost always has someone just looking or pointing a camera at it, even in the gloom as I have done on many occasion. Many thanks and best wishes, Sam :o)

I wouldn't wish to see it pristine Neil but the amount of plastic bottles and polystyrene food boxes is getting silly since they never disintigrate. It's time those being entertained at her majesty's pleasure were taken out to tidy this and many other places up. Rant over :o) Cheers fella :o)

Good idea to get them tidying up Sam give them something to do, looks to be plenty of rubbish floating about.

...and a whole lot of holed boats! Quite negative scenes can make for wonderful images and you have captured it well. Regards Derek

Looks to be more than plenty Ianthough I'll wager my idea is never put into practice, the prison reform do gooders would be up in arms at such a notion :o( .

Derek, it's not so very long ago that Jennifer was in good health and sporting fresh paint so her forlorn position here shows how quickly things can go from good to bad . You're right though such scenes do make images more characterful.

Cheers guys :o)
