Photoblog: View from the shore (2)

Posted by indigodream on 7 June, 2012

Thursday 7th June

We have had a great response to our request for photos from the shore – keep them coming – it is such a thrill to relive the event through these images – I’m more excited now than I was on the day – mind you, I am sitting now in my comfy armchair, toastingly dry and enjoying a large mug of tea πŸ™‚

We’ll publish them as and when we get them, but here are a few more that we’re posting for posterity!

Simon Tregidgo, a friend of the Herbie’s left a link to his gallery in a comment on the last post, there is one on the left – his photos are so atmospheric, they are brilliant!

We’ve also been searching for images on Flickr – there are thousands, as you can imagine, but only a select few of the narrowboats, so we’ve included a few links to the relevant images below (we’ll add more in later posts):

I have put some links inside the photo captions to galleries which I don’t are clickable so here are clickable versions:

Simon Tredigo photos are here

Harald Joergens photos (there are loads as I think he set out to catch every boat) are here

Both are worth a click!

View from Hammersmith – before the rain started in earnest – the friend who took these photos got frozen while waiting for us – I’m glad that she did though – they’re fab photos!

View from Hammersmith Bridge…

I think this is a view from a professional photographer friend of Steve’s – Harald Joergense who was on Battersea Bridge, have a look here: for a wonderful collection of pageant photos. That’s Margaret looking very svelte in the Homer suit – she spelled me for over an hour – my waving arms were grateful for the rest!

Photos from Denise and Colin – I work with Denise – she’s a fellow boating enthusiast!

Another great photo from Colin and Denise..

This was sent in by Carol (who left a comment a few days ago) – taken from a relatively sheltered spot under Blackfriars Bridge. Don’t we look cheerful – by this stage we couldn’t have been any wetter if we’d jumped into the river πŸ™‚

Another photo from Carol, taken from under Blackfriars Bridge – this is my favourite so far – look at us all waving like lunatics – it was the least we could do for the cheering crowds that had stayed out in the rain to greet us….

    Maybe we should ask them to close the barrier every time a narrowboat wants to cruise the tideway πŸ™‚

    It was very bumpy round the Isle of Dogs later on….

    It was a great sight, despite the gloom.
