Caught nicely in that lighting Bill..Are they the tops of barges?
Bill Phillips: They are indeed Ron. Now i get confused but I think, strictly speaking, these are narrowboats. I bet someone can tell us the difference!
Some people have garden sheds to keep their precious things in - these boat owners have the tops of their boats. smile smile
Bill Phillips: LOL Space is at a premium i guess
great composition smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Charles

A nice composition but I wouldn't like to live in one of these
Bill Phillips: Nor I. Perhaps if i was on my own maybe but I doubt it

The lighting here is just fantastic. Great capture.
Bill Phillips: It was a lovely afternoon with late November sunshine

That is why they have the narrow design. You can fit a lot of them in at the wharf
Bill Phillips: Well it is a thought. I think when you see how narrow the locks are....... grin
Nice shot and great music video.
Bill Phillips: I loved the video.
Aha it's boat monday, or boat friday and very late.
Bill Phillips: I think of this more as a compositional exercise utilising diagonals, light and colour.

a nice, original perspective of the boats, their close togetherness may protect them a bit from coldness, snow, and frost during the wintertime, but some of them seem to need also some twiddle- treatment from the wharf doctors?
Bill Phillips: I think a bit of winter maintenance is taking place Philine
Great angle on these boats Bill. I'm knocked out by the video, just my type of thing.
Bill Phillips: I love it. It has always been a great song and this is beautifully put together

That Stand By Me video brings tears to my eyes every time I see it, Bill. I LOVE it. And your image brings back happy memories from Amsterdam days. smile
Bill Phillips: I saw it for the first time just the other day when a friend emailed it to me. It is very good

I think I can hep with your reply to Ron. You'll find narrowboats are quite narrow whereas barges are more barge-like. I hope this has helped. Interesting display of coat hooks on the middle boat.
Bill Phillips: I know that I can always rely on you to cut through the flim-flam and obfuscation and tease out the essential information. Also you are the only person who has observed the coat hooks. Well done sir

Fine picture Bill...

...and I thought the roads were overcrowded ;o)
Bill Phillips: I think the canals around us are going to get very busy in the next couple of years
If it were summer they would be covered in painted buckets full of Geraniums! smile
Bill Phillips: LOL! They would indeed Linda
Missed this earlier Bill. Fine colours, lines, angles and light. Looks like these critters are moored up for the winter.
Bill Phillips: Yes i think some overhauls are being done
Very nearly an abstract. Such a nice, and unusual, picture.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ellie. I cropped it to concentrate on the lines and colours

Canal-boat lids?

Lovely in the sun!
Bill Phillips: LOL! Something like that
Love the music video. Nice diagonals.
Bill Phillips: It's great isn't it?
