Over the next couple of years or so I'll be hiking the Thames Path from the source of the River Thames near Kemble in Gloucestershire to its finish at the Thames Barrier a little to the east of central London. Its official length is 184 miles, so I'll be hiking at least 368 miles as I'll hike it fully in both directions. And as I sometimes go off piste it will end up well over 400 miles. See the very first post for further information.
After a short delay whilst I’ve been getting over a strained back I’m now eager to complete this project. Throughout the day I felt somewhat disheartened about the images I was finding - to the point where at the end I imagined that I had nothing to show for the day’s hike. It’s an uncomfortable feeling when I’d anticipated from the start nearly 2 years ago that I’d find something to show for every single day that I hiked. I anticipated a hard time when I uploaded my files to my iMac. So, I was more than pleased that as I looked through and then worked on the images of the day I found, much to surprise - and huge relief - that I had several that I am very pleased with. I even have one where there are people within the frame … something that almost never happens for me! Two more days will see me through to the end of the project when I reach the Thames Barrier.
