|Maryon Wilson Park...|
I really do love this ornate 'green' looking bollard that appears weathered due to its environment within the park.
From Charlton South London to South America for our #guestbollard feature in Parati, Brazil thanks to @nancyo on the twitter.
Take a look at the stone bollard immediately below standing/planted on a beautiful stone cobbled road. The bollard is octagonal in shape and rises vertically and then reduces in size on the upper third of its body where it rises and then the sides morph/merge into a nearly smooth slightly domed shaped top. We can see the iron/steel work that is placed over the top/head of the bollard with a chain attached that effectively keeps traffic out of this area/road.
I really do like the look of Parati, Brazil, you can see the European/Portuguese influence in the buildings the colours/perspective of the picture (bottom) really does seem so inviting. Who would have thought we would have travelled from South London to South America via a set of bollards.
