Its funny how a couple of steps, or a turn of the body can change the view of what you are capturing.
I was stood by the pontoon of the watersports centre on Salford Quays, when the Canada Geese came up the centenary walkway for their elevenses.
In they came one after the other, heading for a grassy spot by the pontoon where a water bailiff had generously left some bird food across it. They all ate like royalty, and then waddled back down the walkway to the watersports centre, where they hopped in and out of the canal basins
To start with, here’s a night time shot of the Holiday inn express on Salford’s Quayside, taken at Dusk by one of the Docks or as the people call them now basins 🙂
You could call this a 3D shot – as it was Dark as well !
The canal is pretty Deep, and joins up to the river irwell and mersey
This shot was taken during a family holiday to the Turkish Resort of Oludeniz. The beach was teaming with wildlife, maybe down to the hordes of fish that sat in the clear blue waters by the sand. The Ducks raised a smile as they waddled about in the sea.
Hi folks, Inky reporting from behind his desk at the toolshed.
Regular viewers will know i started this site to share my scribbles thoughts and photography with you all.
Most of the poetry (not all) comes from my online repository on Allpoetry.com
Now here’s the thing. when i post to the Allpoetry server, the little gremlins working inside it, read every word i’ve written and give it a score – made up of professionalism, whether people like it or not – grammatical issues and all.
It’s very rare i get a straight 10 – I Got one today!
Here’s the poem, it’s called The Canal, and it was originally written around the time Salford celebrated the Centenary of the Manchester Ship Canal and Salford Docks.
