Photographer's Note

Not far from Rickmansworth, a walk of about 2km actually, several spurs run off the Grand Union Canal; they're all dead-ends, culs-de-sac. Mostly one finds house-boats here, colorful canal boats, permanently moored beside the bank where a small piece of land has been commandeered to make an 'annex' or to build a shed.

Near the end of one spur I found this very English looking house. I'm not sure when it was built; but to me it has the look of something built in the 1930s perhaps, or 40s. I think houses of this design were usually divided into two residences, which would explain the two TV antennae. I remember that after several short excursions down untidy, increasingly overgrown stretches of water, I was almost taken aback by the gloriously reflected scene that you see here.

Rickmansworth is about 31km north-west of the centre of London, an outer suburb with the feel of a village.
