Negotiating the Lock

The Tuesday Photo Challenge from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo prompt: Lock

Near where I stay in Paris is the Canal St Martin where sometimes boats travel along the canal, whether it be traders, ferries or the tourist sight seeing boats. In order to get through the canal and onto The Seine, the boats must negotiate a series of locks.

Here is Le Martin Pecheur making its way along the Canal St Martin.

Birds will always supply that bit of motion. The Superb Fairy Wrens at the bird bath

When there is a crowd at the bird bath, there is always some action
