Black Country Museum Reflections 3/5

Back on the 4th.September you will recall a group of us met up at the Black Country Museum in the heart of the English Midlands at Dudley where we had a great time together.

 

The village area is built around the Canal Basin and this is a short series of images taken of the reflections looking into the water, which itself is very clear, probably because of the lack of much movement of those narrow boats still in working order.

Wonderful image, Brian.

This looks like a restorer's dream...did you make an offer?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. I guess this might stay like that, it gives the place character and apparently Bill posted a picture of this same boat like this back in 2007.
I like this shot - all the peeling red paint adds a little flavor!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.

Oh yes, Brian. I bet we all have a picture of this beauty in our archives from that great day! Your take on it is lovely.
Brian Walbey: This was a subject not to miss Ginnie.

Wonderful image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
I posted a picture of this in 2007...and it still hasn't sunk! How did the presentation go last night?

Brian Walbey: I really like your presentation of this Bill, so different than mine, really each subject has so many different ways of presenting it I always feel. Last night went well, I think my images were appreciated and my ShiftN and Tint Editor demos generated some discussion which was good. I am doing 3 presentations next week would you believe.
I've got an exact copy of this myself Brian ... Shan't post mine now.
Brian Walbey: I'm sorry about that Richard, give it a while and then return to it, a different tke on the same subject is always interesting. Bill done a posting of this boat in 2007 here http://yellowbear.shutterchance.com/theme/1-all-themes/image/2007/12/03/going-nowhere/

Very pretty Brian: you can see the weeds underwater there
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. I suspect the water doesn't get disturbed very much in this little channel.
nice work on reflection
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantel.
pity that boat although it looks like if smiling
Brian Walbey: Yes it does a bit Juan, thanks for your comment.

Very good reflections again. What a shame, though, that the barge is allowed to rot away.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. It is a shame and I gather it has been like this a fair while, Bill posted a picture of it like this in 2007.
Nice colours and textures Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred.
Yes, this boat had once seen better days, but it has still some charm, esp. because of its fading colours. The reflections look a bit mysterious, there seem to be some other things we cannot see yet.
Brian Walbey: It is certainly good material for a photograph Philine.
It does make a good picture doesn't it. Could have been a geriatric boat Friday
Brian Walbey: It does Janet, but Friday's image is boats, but not geriatric ones.

That barge is ripe for renovation Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes but at what cost Chad?
I think the boat has seen better days.
Brian Walbey: Yes but it makes a good picture like this doesn't it.

What some people would do for this boat, lovely capture with the reflection Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda. No doubt it would cost a fortune to refurbish.
Love the distressed barge, looks like a good hunting ground.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a great little area for pictures John.
Sad little boat Brian, what a shame to see it derelict
Brian Walbey: It is, but also good subject matter for a photo Pamela.
