Monday 27 February 2012: The Rower
I've seen quite a few rowers setting off from the rowing club on the route to the gym but this morning some really serious looking sorts where training. I managed to get ahead of them, set up on the river bank and blip him as he rocketed past.
Theres been some discussion about how odd this image looks this afternoon. The reflection from the houseboat creates the illusion that he is rowing in a small rectangular pool, barely longer than the scull. Theres also an odd scale thing happening with the house boat. All it really needs is an amazonian model with the blonde beehive, dark horn rimmed sunglasses in a red dress leaning over the balcony to complete the image of surreality.
Possibly smoking a pipe.
You have to view this large and try and work out what it says on the prow
Heres an enlargment...
