Mini-film, watching the tide slowly come in, last Friday.
And a couple of photos earlier in the same walk – scum on the surface of the Avon, by the Entrance Lock:
Something meaningful, but I don’t know what it means:
Podcasts, photos, films and soundscapes about the River Avon in Bristol
It’s a dreich, dull April – I laughed, because double-checking the spelling of dreich, the Oxford Dictionary example of how to use it is ‘a cold, dreich early April day’. I still haven’t replaced my broken film cameras, but on Saturday, I took one of Vik’s Holgas – a plastic-lensed, medium-format, very basic camera, with 160iso film, because we didn’t have any 400. And I’m really enjoying the results. First, some shots from Ashton Avenue Bridge, with the outflow from Colliter’s Brook into the Avon, and across the river, Ashton Brook (a historic County boundary).
A film-ette from Ashton Avenue Bridge. The river gets fast here, with the rapids just above it, and the tide was low and rushing out. It’s not my favourite film, but I do like the way the light changes in them, and the shadows on the river.
Two mobile phone film-ettes from Ashton Avenue Bridge:

I’m missing the Chocolate Path so much, and the Outflow, but I hope I can find other places to film.
