This week we are asked to share a photo (or photos) of something that keeps us coming back. For many years I have been taking photos of this particular section of canal, with a lock. Every time I pass I hope to take the perfect shot but so far that has eluded me, although I was pretty happy with the early morning ones I took in April this year, for another weekly photo challenge.
The lock has changed slightly since I took my first photos: some much needed repairs to the gates were carried out a couple of years ago, and the hand rails along the tops of the gates were changed. Sacrilege! I thought the white rails looked so much better – it’s going to take me years to get used to the new look!
The first set of photos is the lock with its original gates and rails. Click on any photo for a closer look.
The next photo is when the far gate had been replaced. It just didn’t look like ‘my’ lock any more.
Then both gates were replaced with the new black handrails.
