We took a walk from Kew to Richmond today and I just happened to be carrying my camera. :-)

This is the Old Isleworth Boathouse at Syon Park.

And the path forked around this tree. I suppose in some places they might have cut it down, but I loved the way this looked.

If that is a boathouse, I think I would like to visit and get some barnacles scraped off.

Interesting pictures. The tree in the path is just the sort of thing I have always imagined I would find in Jolly Old. On this side of the pond, we just bulldoze them out of the way. Question: do you pass the tree on the left or right?

Quite a productive day you've had peripatetic! Wonderful - Can't possibly choose a favourite since they are all quite different styles, well chosen styles I might add.

Hi Craig [strange thing that you took your camera ??!!]

I enjoy the tree/path pic, it make you think a lot of things

Question: do you pass the tree on the left or right?

ie: If you're a dog, DO you pass the tree ??

If you just happen to have your camera [by chance, that is], DO you passthe tree??

All Good, thanks

BTW, there's some good downloadable pdf's at Photokit's sight [resources] on sharpening, conversion to B&W and much more, written by a few of the boffins who created photoshop. I have d/loaded them and browsed a bit, but haven't had time for a full study yet.

Check it out

Thanks Jake those resources look very useful indeed.

The tow path along the Thames near Kew is fairly anarchic. It takes both bicycles and pedestrians. Many of the people who use it are foreigners, so about half seem to think they should be walking or cycling on the right and half think on the left.

Also there seem to be quite a few who prefer the middle, and some clearly English folk who seem determined to hug the right edge.

Anyway it seems that the whole business is managed with lots of smiles, a little dancing, and remarkably few collisions.

It's a fair old distance though from our house to Richmond, nearly two hours each way, so we were a little tired when we got home. But it's a lovely walk and I recommend it highly to anyone visiting London.

Hi,

Really love the first pic (a sugared almond - beautifully portrayed!). Also love the tree pic. Great stuff.

abw,

Canna

Thanks Canna

I can't think what "abw" is an abbreviation for. I googled it and came up with:

Actual Body Weight
Alcohol By Weight
Adriatic Bottom Water (the mind boggles!!)
Air Base Wing
Country code for Aruba
SI Unit for 100 Nanowatts of power
African BlackWood
Array Bounds Write
Australian Breeding Value
Almond Brown Wood (paint colour)

But none of those seemed quite right in context.

Please help. :-)

Hi Peripatetic,

abw = all best wishes....though alcohol by weight sounds pretty impressive,as does Australian breeding value (.......:?......)

btw, have you done the walk from Hammersmith more or less along the river, walking from the Riverside Studios & going west? I think it ends in a churchyard....That was one of my faves....lots of truly gorgous old houses, with sandbags at their gates.

Canna.
