Nice photo. Is that Mick's bike skulking in the undergrowth, on second look, naw I don't think so.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 20th January 2018 at 08:20
Goodness, doesnt it make you want to give up the bricks & mortar & go and live on a narrow boat !

Thank for the daydream Dave.


Comment by irene roberts on 20th January 2018 at 11:23
No, Ken, I think it's Howard and Marina!


Comment by Mick on 20th January 2018 at 11:55
Not so nice a photo if you do go skulking in the undergrowth you would find plastic bags of poo that the boat man has chucked there.


Comment by Maurice on 20th January 2018 at 15:44
Nice,the smoke adds a lot,it appears the other bike frame has just been painted.


Comment by Ken R on 20th January 2018 at 17:10
Did you ever paint a bike fame? You did all the prep work ,bought the new coloured paint from Halfords, painted as per instructions and still it turned out like c--p.


Comment by Maurice on 20th January 2018 at 18:42
I painted my motorbike with Brushing Belco,it was Celulose and dried in 15mins,it was slapped on,one coat after another,after about 15 coats it could be smoothed off the next day with wet & dry,finishing with Brasso,the finished surface was brilliant.


Comment by Mick on 20th January 2018 at 19:16
When I last painted a bike frame there was no Halfords


Comment by Julie on 20th January 2018 at 21:17
Why is it only Helen has grasped the true sense of Oy?


Comment by Poet on 20th January 2018 at 22:48
Is it not surprising that most folk do not grasp the true sense of Oy.
There are Philistines out there who would say this is just a snap of a narrow boat on the cut. One despairs at times.


Comment by Phil on 20th January 2018 at 23:24
Mick, Halfords was founded in 1892. You last painted a bike before 1892...!!!
How old are you?


Comment by Veronica on 21st January 2018 at 08:51
The Tracey Emin of 'photography' make of it what you will....!
