Dusk, Salts Mill
My lovely daughter came up from London to stay for a few days last week, attending the wedding of one of her best friends. They met almost 20 years ago, at middle school, and have been firm friends ever since, keeping close even though they went their separate ways to senior school and then uni and V now lives in California. In traditional fashion, the girls arranged a 'hen do' a couple of days before the wedding. Thankfully, they didn't all dress like tarts and get drunk! Instead they had a 'Yorkshire' themed afternoon and evening - complete with flat caps. (The bride's had a veil attached!) Part of it involved a trip on a narrowboat along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal through Saltaire, enjoying cakes and champagne as they cruised along.
Being the sweet girl that she is, J took some photos for me.. a boat level view of Saltaire, just as dusk was falling. I am therefore delighted to present my first guest photographer on SDP - my very talented daughter. This shot is taken in that narrow stretch of the canal between Salts Mill on the right and the New Mill.
