This little picture of mine has actually attracted some attention on Flickr. it probably isn’t very good but it was an attempt to start documenting the changing face of our cities. All those small features from bygone years which if noticed swiftly gets blotted out with plastic.
I took this whilst cycling in Oxford last summer holiday. It is taken near the short cutting that joins the Oxford Canal to the Thames. it is also the place where Colin Dexter placed the murder in his Inspector Morse thriller ‘The Wench is Dead’. In the picture is a narrow boat manned by a crew who were rather murdering their ship handling.
To say its cold here is an distinct understatement. Needless to say, your are risking at least limb using the pavements. But manage to get down safely to front for a few photos. Not so lucky on way home – came a cropper on the ice. Definately not a day for cycling!
