Morning by Barnsley Canal

It’s true the what they say on the radio, Spring is here. Spent another hour outside with Helen by a bit of disused Barnsley Canal as she sketched her way along the fishermen platforms. Although the sun was out it did get cold in the shade. Sitting drawing does not generate enough body heat no matter how well wrapped up you are. Again as yesterday, I felt like my drawing was not up to scratch, so moved around taking photographs. I made a comment yesterday about Photographers not spending as much time in front of their subject as a drawer, this is of course a huge generalisation. Photographers can spend lots of time in front of their subject, waiting for the right light or for the right event and so create  a memory of place and time.
