I quite like the boring theme, now running through the thread. I can now see a boring and uninteresting canal path, does have plenty of photographic opportunities, if you can learn to see them. Getting down low or getting up higher, spotting that ray of light illuminating the growing plant life, at the side of the bank. Even shapes and patterns on a wall, graffiti on a wall looks good, when taken correctly.
I suppose I will have to confess and say, I would have probably missed most of what you all spotted, had I walked all those routes above. I would have probably said, I spotted nothing of interest. I know I need to slow down, and start to look properly, and from different angles and viewpoints.
As I said, I quite like how you are all showing me, just how boring interesting a canal path can be.
