Project 365 – Day Two Hundred and Sixty One – Foxton Locks

day 261

Having spent most of my week off in bed with ‘flu, it felt wonderful to finally get out with my camera on Friday. Just a local trip out to Foxton Locks, near Market Harborough. It was rather cold, but my fingers lasted out until just before the light died for the day.

One small and unexpected bonus of the cold was that the parking ticket machine was frozen up and wouldn’t accept my £1.50. I did call the number on the machine, just to make sure I wouldn’t get clamped. It put me through to British Waterways where a nice lady confirmed they were aware of the problem and that I wouldn’t come back to my car to discover a yellow boot chained to it.

I chose this photo of all those I took today because it reminds me just how great it felt to get out and about again. A broad expanse of sky, some sun light and of course my shadow, in photo shooting posture.
