Sat in my mental folder marked ‘things to blog about’ is my day at the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port.
There were plenty of colourful, photogenic boats and much more besides, but as usual it was ‘the stuff round the back’ that caught my eye. A dilapidated wide beam boat awaiting restoration,
My friend Mrs Ogg thinks it is a watercress barge.
What is it about peeling/fading paint that I find so appealing?
The reason for my visit was a photography course, I thought after five years it was time I found out what some of the knobs and buttons on my camera do. I think my camera enjoyed have its brain taken out for a walk.
It was good to get away from things for a while, and on that subject; I’ve just spent a sublime half an hour looking at the blog of Steve McCurry, oh my, what a joy his photographs are, his reasons for blogging are interesting too. I may have to pour myself a glass of wine and drift back for another look.
