Over the May Day weekend there was a festival promoting the Canals at Little Venice ~~ Beautifully dressed narrow boats wore their flags with pride. There was many stalls on the tow path promoting all things to do with Canals ~ the Spur down to Paddington Basin was crammed full of narrow boats too as were the other two canal outlets from Little Venice ~ it is good to see so much happening.

eleni. ~~ It was a wonderful sight immortal one and I don't think that this shot gives a full impression of how good it was ~ yes I was just lucky to trip over the festival ~ I had been meaning to do a few shots of Little Venice for some time under my Grand Union Canal project

All the very best to you from nick

Nick, lovely, cheerful photo. How very pretty to see all this happy gathering of boats and people on the canal. I love the English canals and I think of travelling once on them or along them. Little Venice seems to have its name rightly. There is almost a southernly atmosphere. My best wishes, May

♫ Swissmay ~~ Hello May ~ I'm glad you like this shot ~ I have built up quite a few of the Grand Union Canal under that name as a tab ~~ I'm sure you would have a wonderful holiday if you ever did decide to take a holiday on the canals ~ it would be difficult to know which one to choose there are so many and you travel so slowly along them. Yes Little Venice is a wonderful spot and I was so lucky to trip across this colourful festival there ~ all the very best to you from nick

3frem ~ Don't worry sometimes photography can take up too much time on a holiday and you get to miss all of the looking around ~ so maybe you did the right thing and enjoyed your visit to London and looked around and soaked up the atmosphere, now you can use my gallery to remind you of some things and help you plan what you might like to take next time you visit London again :) So I'm very glad that you like the London Series ~ Ciao nick
