Are you Goosey Goosey Gander, Bill, or intending that I play that part?
Bill Phillips: I haven't got the legs Ray so it will have to be you
Photographed adroitly... :0
Bill Phillips: Very good Sir Larry smile
I love the reflection in the little puddle of water on the sidewalk.

Very nice Bill, the best bit for me is that intense image in the small puddle.
Bill Phillips: I was pleased with that bit too Chad

This has started off well: you paid a complete stranger to put a red coat on and become a feature of this charming vista
Bill Phillips: I waited for a personage to cross the bridge and to my delight this lady in red appeared!

OK, I'm in, Bill. Let's go. The puddle, I take it, is a glimpse of things to come?!
Bill Phillips: You will actually get to see blue skies Ginnie!!
Oh gosh: The 'red raincoated girl' and the 'pond' reminds me very much of the film 'Don't Look Now' with Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland'. A dark and yet very powerful film with my favourite actress Julie Christie.

But then it wasn't set on a sunny, blue sky sort of day.
Bill Phillips: so apart from the pond being a canal and it being sunny......... I used to like Julie Christie

I will enjoy your series as a foretaste of things to come, Bill. Droitwich is on this year's Wish List
Bill Phillips: I am pleased to hear that Lisl. I would be pleased to show you round

The litte blue reflection of the bridge and sky on the path is worth a photo!
Bill Phillips: It was that that attracted me Philine. Then the lady in red came along and I was very pleased!
This is going to have the coach parties flocking in .
Bill Phillips: They are already queueing down the Worcester road trying to find a parking space Mick
This is a peaceful summery scene. I love that reflecting puddle - took a while to work out what it was.
Bill Phillips: And it was taken in January Sheila.

Now there's a nice bright sunny image. See, I knew you could do it smile I like the puddle with the reflection, the lady on the bridge and the surprising lack of litter. the bridge looks quite low; can you walk upright under it.
Bill Phillips: Most people would have to stoop a bit!

There are two wanders on the bridge. Join them, so you won't get lost.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha, If I can't find my way around after living here for 36 years I'm in trouble smile
Don't go along there when you're drunk, Bill!
Bill Phillips: There have been a few who have fallen in over the years Tom
More of the Droitwich canal I presume. The puddle reflection is the main point of interest of course, it would be slightly less enjoyable without that. Sorry a bit "clubby" today, we had a big competition last night and all my shots "bombed out"!!
Bill Phillips: It is indeed the canal. Sorry about your competition result.

A nice shot Bill. I love the little puddle here.
Bill Phillips: The puddle is the best bit Frances
You've found a portal, Bill! smile
Bill Phillips: It is a hole in the fabric of space and time...where's me sonic screwdriver...
Fine light and capture Bill
Bill Phillips: Nice winter sun John
LOVE that little detail that you highlight in the thumbnail. It really makes a statement.
Bill Phillips: Best bit of the picture really Mary
nice light and shadows, that canal water looks quite muddy..
Bill Phillips: A result of a lot of rain plus the fact that just up from here the canal is joined by the river Salwarpe
I like the small red blue hints you have caught here Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Juan Carlos
Here's hoping it fares better than Bournemouth! smile
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha......This was a rare sunny Day!
Lovely capture Bill. I like the window on the quayside!
Bill Phillips: Always carry a mirror Richard grin
That reflection on the towpath's a bit bloody clever!
Bill Phillips: It was a bit bloody luckygrin
