Photo-a-Day (Friday, 1st June, 2018)
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Nikon D850 with Nikon 24-70mm F/2.8 )
Still proud Collossus of the pit,
Blazing with rust you now stand decrepit.
Yet in younger days they knew your worth,
When your noble clanging powered the earth.
When you are gone it
Will be like the passing of the last Mammoth!
That's the way to do It!
Went last week end when there was a steam gala on.Then had the winding gear running with compressed air. Looked at the old mining equipment could recognize most of it.Daughter-in law asked me about a large grey object and after a few minutes I saw it was a coal hopper with man riding cages underneath.Brought back a lot of memories from my 20 years down the black hole
Excellent photo Dave.
My friend took a photo of this some years ago and framed it for my birthday
Different slant photo, good. When I
first saw this headgear I thought of a maccano set ( No disrespect to the designers or builders).
I suspect a Maccano set would be ideal, you can't get better material to make pitgear headframe.
Dave Oy , your work always stands out ,which is a huge credit to you . When a picture comes up and you know (well I do) it’s a Dave Oy , then , for me its value speaks for itself . Thankyou !
I 'suspect' you meant 'meccano' Ken R and Howard P.
I suspect you're right Veronica!
Thanks Veronica, I must have looked at that word four or five times before spelling it wrong.
any thanks folks - it's a great place!
