Working on the water


This is something you'd never get me doing!  I can't stand climbing ladders and I especially couldn't stand being on a ladder with its feet in the canal!  It looks like these are painters with quite a demanding task ahead of them - though the canal isn't very deep really.  I featured this lovely little window before on this blog.  It's an office, with a very attractive outlook onto the canal.  I don't think I'd get much work done if my desk was there.  It's right beside the overnight moorings for boats at Salts Wharf and there are usually a couple of narrowboats tied up.

  2. It's not so bad for the chap on the ladder, it's the little lad he has holding the ladder steady at the bottom that I feel sorry for.

  3. Great photo! I'm assuming that the canal has a concrete bottom? In that case, at least the ladder is standing on something solid and leaning against something solid. Probably not dangerous, and I might even do it for FREE if I could get a ride on that boat afterward. :-)

  4. Neat shot! And another good argument for never leaving your camera at home! Jim

  6. Add this to the already-long list of jobs that Jack does not want.
