Firstly I Thought of Drinking Vessels and Decided to Take a Shot of This A Coronation Halve Pint Glass Given to all The School Children in Doncaster This Particular One Was Given to My Mother As A School Kid Why They Gave Them Halve Pint Glass's I Do Not Know
Then I Thought Boats or Ships Are Vessels So Went Down To The Local Boating Lake And Took These Shots Again in Colour & B&W

Anyway Back on track for the Comp and Down to Tetney Marshes Where I Know there will Be More Shots Although you Have to Walk on The Sand or Mud Flats in Parts and About 1/2 a Mile out
The Building Behind The Yacht is Known as Haile Fort and Dates Back to the First World War When it Was used to Defend the Humber Estuary
There were about 5 Yachts High and Dry With no one in them So I Kept Snapping
Well Then it Was Home to See What I Was Going to Choose For the Challenge and Clean My Boots this is only a Sample there Were 40 Shots to Choose From This is The One I Chose You May Have Picked Differently If So Tell Me Which One And Why
And For Anyone who Would Like to See Haile Fort More Closely Here is one Last Shot and Some More Information
The two forts were planned in 1914 to protect the entrance to the estuary. They stand 18 metres (59 ft) above the water and have a diameter of 25 metres (82 ft). There was accommodation for 200 soldiers. Starting in May 1915, they took more than four years to build and construction was not finished until December 1919. During World War II they were reactivated and modernised. The forts were regularly attacked by enemy aircraft. During this time a netting was put up to prevent enemy submarines travelling up the estuary to Hull or Grimsby. The forts were finally deserted by the military in 1956. Recently it Was Sold For the Sum of £1 And it is Understood to Be Used in the Future to Treat Drug Addicts as a Re-ability Centre.
