Nowadays, you see mostly old tires nailed to the pilings to buffer ships as they bump into the piers. But in this small harbor, a few pilings were wrapped in old-fashioned rope.

So much more fitting for a harbor area than old tires! Great tones and textures captured in this B&W composition! Great DoF used here.
