We have ignition (and we can't stop it) — Ben trying to turn off the engine

photo: a slow exposure has caused Ben's face and hands to blur, but the engine control panel he is stood next to can be seen fairly sharply, the ignition key hanging out of it; blurry but also visible is the boat user manual, open in Ben's arm.

Location: Stoke Works, Worcestershire; moored opposite the pub by the canal.

Date: Saturday 27th June 1998.

Equipment: Yashica T5 compact.

Emulsion: Fujifilm Superia 400.

Keywords: narrowboat, ignition key, engine control panel, user manual, confusion.

Notes: this scene was too dark for sharpness on ISO 400 film, but I'm still happy I didn't resort to flash.
