An interesting note about "hucka" but not for me the first thing that comes to mind when I see this winch. For me, I'd dream of tackling it with a tin of releasing oil, some grease, a wire brush and some oversize spanners to see if I could get it into working order!
But this winch certainly makes a statement - whatever that may be - in front of that rather interesting Art Deco building behind - is that a hotel?
Lovely lighting and colours, excellent depth of field, spot-on exposure and excellent detail and sharpness.
And, like yourself, I think this picture has more impact than your workshop one, fine though it also is.
To tyro: White Building
Thanks for the kind critique.
Maybe the hucka is just a woman thing!!!
You're right about the building; it is very art deco.
It certainly wouldn't look out of place in a Poirot investigation.
Although it looks very spacious, I don't recall it being a hotel; I'm pretty sure that it was just a private residence. From this side, it looks fine because of the curves;from the beach side it looks like a monstrosity, very sttraight sided and angular, like a huge packing case.
