Screens - Thematic Photography

When I saw that the topic for this week's thematic photography was 'Screens' I decided I only needed one new shot,

Thematic Photography - picture archive
I just hope you can read the header. Other photos are a selection from my files.

Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge - Visitor Centre
Wall display plus small screen of bridge in action

The Tees Barrage is up-river from the Transporter and there I found a different type of screen, this time designed to keep people out.

Archimedes Screws at Tees Whitewater Rafting Centre
The four screws recycle water from the rafting course back to the start. Only the two centre screws were lifting water when this shot was taken.

There's a ghostly look to my next set of screens in use back in the early 1940s.

Mosquito Nets - Egypt - UK naval base
You may think my next picture does not include a screen but there is still a maritime connection.

Rudder on SS Great Britain in Bristol Dry Dock
I would claim that the glass cover to the dock screens out the sunlight at least..

In the next a glass screen in the form of a box encloses a model.

Truro Cathedral inside Truro Cathedral
The crowd has still to arrive in this basketball stadium in Lansing, Michigan and the screens are blank.

Graduation Day for Thomas Cooley Law School
And for the golfing fans.

Olazabal Takes A Putt
For a leisurely ride home there is nothing to beat the view through a windscreen like this.

Helicopter approaching Nice.
Here's two who are saying it's time to go.

You Drive
But before you go make sure have your sunscreen on when you visit Carmi's Written Inc. screens

Varied lot of pictures this time, Bob. Clever interpretation of "Screen".

I am amazed by your surprising way to find your topics and this one was surely no exception.Congrats on your screen shots!

Lots of things to see. I was curious when I saw the Truro Cathedral. We have a very small town in Iowa that is named Truro. I had always wondered where that name originated. I enjoyed seeing your collection of photos.

You did it again Bob. I was stumped this week. The only screening I could think of was the medical sort - and I don’t want to go down that route!

I can just hear the dogs now..."No! you drive..." a no you drive.... how cute they are! All of these are perfect screen posts! I like Tony's comment and agree you did past the Screen test! Very cool!

Love the rafting center picture!! It looks like something that would encourage a person to climb on it rather than keep them out!

What an interesting and varied collection. The mosquito nets are great and quite spooky.
What beautiful dogs! Are they Labradors? We have owned 5 golden labs over the last 40 years - they were all lovely dogs.

Thanks for sharing these, Bob.

That's a great collection! I love the transporter bridge screens, and also the ghostly collection in Egypt!!
