Weight and Stuff Report – 16 March 2012

Ho hum, up a pound today…

I decided to take yet another stroll to the Quayside at lunchtime, which proved to be a good choice. I managed to arrive in time to see the moment when the last of those horrible bollards was pulled clear of the Tyne. This detailed view is not at all clear and even after processing suffers from noise, but it does show the moment the bollard was lifted out:

The moment

The moment

You should just about be able to make out the gap between metal and water, and the reflection of the end of the bollard.

This shot, taken a moment later shows it most definitely clear of the river:

Clear!

Clear!

I’ll be going back to the area to get some new pictures of the bridge without its bollards…
