Here, there, everywhere...
I passed these narrowboats when I was walking by the Leeds-Liverpool Canal at the weekend enjoying the sunshine. It's still pretty cold here but there was a promise of spring in the air. It brought out walkers, joggers, people exercising their dogs - and of course photographers like me. There is a small marina and boat repair yard a few miles along the canal from Saltaire, and lots of boats moor there for the winter. On a sunny Sunday, it seemed like quite a few boat-owners had decided it was time to do a bit of preparation for the summer season: cleaning, painting and generally tidying up.
How could I resist taking this picture? It provides a wonderful introduction to another of my favourite blogs: cieldequimper's Here, There and Everywhere - random pictures. She's another skilful photographer with a good eye for composition. Her blog features photos from all over the world, and she also has two more: Versailles Daily Photo and a new one called Artsy Versailles. You've got to admire someone who can keep three great photo blogs going!
