CEES CMMC Photo Challenge…… A Word with a V


My Word with a V for Cees Photo Challenge is Vessel.

I can also add that it is a Vintage Vessel.  It is a Narrow Boat pictured at Bath, on the Kennet and Avon Canal.  There once were many different styles of narrowboat also known as working boats.  Before the introduction of railways there once was a network of Canals that crisscrossed the country, much like todays Motorways.  Canals were the mode of transport for goods in the early industrial revolution.  Originally horse drawn, then steam powered and in later years diesel powered, they kept pace as best they were able with transport power progression. 

Today Narrowboats and canals are very much a leisure industry though for some they are a home on the water.

CMMC Midweek Challenge – WHITE

School-Room - Copy

The Old School Room….

Cees Midweek Challenge nominates white as the colour to feature.  The walls of this old School Room may now be a little ‘off’ white but I think it still fits the bill.

Just a little fun for half way through the second week of the New Year.

Have fun but as always……..

Sunset-Morecambe-Bay -BW

Sundown over Morecambe Bay, Lancashire

The tide once again carved a unique pattern in the sands of the Bay…. a temporary work of natures art, to be replaced by yet another…. when the tide turns once again.

I have been a tad busy of late so only one contribution to  Cees B&W Challenge.  This week the topic is Bumpy or Lumpy, so take your pick with the above image.
