Canal Side

just the one shot worth keeping from our walk along the canal yesterday between Camden and St Pancras. It would have been rude to pay more attention to my camera than to the boys and so I resisted.

It is always tempting to take a shot under a bridge and this certainly leant itself to this week's theme of negative space for the 52 week challenge.
Love this comp. Love the leading lines, reflections and silhouettes.

You only need the one shot and this is a cracker, lovely reflections and silhouettes. Is that your boys in front, oblivious of the sneaky camera use Helen?

Excellent shot too! If this was the only keeper (which I highly suspect it wasn't!) then it's worth the time spent with family (always the better choice too) instead of on camera.

Nice picture. Lots of atmosphere. I like the shiny canal in. I test with the dark foreground

@suzanne234 they are indeed my boys. The youngest at the back has to lower his head to get under the bridge.

@olivetreeann thank you. I was pretty sure it was the only one, but seeing as you asked, I went back and looked at the other four that hadn't been deleted outright. I think I could make something of at least two of them - so you are right!
