Living in London I am surrounded by iconic forms of transportation. Taxis, buses and trains. But having spent the week trying to photograph all of these, I realised that they just weren't dreamy enough for me. They were more about the destination. All those buses and taxis and trains were for getting somewhere and going to particular places (at least, for us Londoners). I thought back to our Summer and our day trips to Oxford where it's not the destination that is important. It's the lying back in the punt (a long wooden boat pushed along with a pole) and enjoying the ride.
Carole's picture reminded me of these lovely dreamy afternoons.
As Rat says in the Wind in the Willows, "There is nothing--absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats". And I would have to agree. I can't wait for those long summer afternoons again.
