Rizwan the strongman pulls us in to moor

photo: Rizwan leans back, face contorted but smiling, tugging the mooring rope with all his might to pull the boat (out of shot) into the bank.

Location: the very first lock after leaving the boat-hire base at Tardebigge, Worcestershire.

Date: Saturday 27th June 1998.

Equipment: Yashica T5 compact.

Emulsion: Fujifilm Superia 400.

Keywords: exertion, mooring rope, canal bank, tow path.

Notes: Rizwan was pulling us into the bank so that another boat (leaving the lock we wanted to get into) could get past us.
