'Love is in the air'? - there is a pillion passenger on the bike. I presume it's sunrise with all the activity, the horse is a nice touch and Mabel brewing up around a corner. I am sure I see Stan working on the dockside.

Sister Eleff -
You are right -the type of vehicles on the quayside are of 1930's vintage and at that time I
was Mate on one of the sailing barges in the dock awaiting our turn to load from that ship.
Well done Alan....
Regards to you both,
Stan

The boy on the bridge: should he have been at school? If so, I'll excuse him, as with all the interesting work going on it is quite strange that he is alone where he stands.

Cheers! to you neil too, I follow the news every day but would rather paint other subjects more cheerful.

Sister Eleff Call me a male chavaunistic pig but I felt like Sir Launcelot du Lac when I took my girlfriend on my pillion. Now they drive their own and Knights have rusty armour. My bikes are long gone.

Stan If only the master of that barge knew how your career would develope ? I think he saw you as a son and was hoping you would take over from him instead of joining Shell .

stein the boy on the bridge , now a teenager, is wistfully gazing on the working river in the time of his father,he was tring to see through his father's eyes .When I was in short trousers and went to a fairground I always found the great lorries running generators and towing the exhibits more fascinating than those exhibits themselves. Give me an old Scammell in preference to dodgem cars.

meechingman nostalgia need not be sad. Thanks for your reaction!.

Good old Scorcher! You've lit our light again, what an imagination you've got plus first class memory. I too can recall being in short trousers, you weren't allowed long ones until you were fourteen and in my time, if you had enough clothing coupons! Your other works Alan are also a delight to see, it's always good to know when SN watchers disappear for a while that they are working on such masterpieces.
regards
Edgar

Hello Edgar Good to hear from you. I must say that your fine work plays its part in my enthusiasm, especially as some of your Thames scenes bring back lost memories as seen through your own prism.Photos are wonderful but the singular vision of a painter is something apart. Keep working !

I've just posted a couple of photos (Model Ships) from a trip to The Netherlands, photos that also have a certain steamy-ness about them. A grand sight to come home to, lang may your boiler puff Scorcher!

Wonderful! The 'dark Satanic mills' ablaze with light in the background, and cheery activity in the foreground. Now, before I read your confession about your miss-spent youth, Alan, I thought that that was Mabel, who had taken a shine to a chap who commended her beautiful baking to ten of his mates, thus increasing her profits by at least 100%. She was pie-eyed with joy, and just had to go on the bike. Are you sure that your memory is not playing tricks? You cannot possibly be on the bridge looking down...and on the bike at the same time, can you? Remember, artistic licence is one thing, but a licence for a bike like that is quite another. And that new motorway system for taking over the driving so that you can play a computer game without having your hands on the wheel had not been invented then... (-: (-: Donald.

Thanks again to you both. I hope that when you gain independence you won't forget your southern friends?

Donald , such sites as you describe " The 'dark Satanic mills' " attracted and repelled me at the same time . Wm Blake expressed my repulsion but Monet (in his Thames paintings) attracted me so I am a confused soul I guess.
Those 'dark Satanic mills' were a boon and a curse though I never read any .Confessions of a mispent youth?
I can answer in one word ; nun, I MEAN NONE of course! I was busy on the tow path "tugging" , by that I mean watching lighters being convoyed and not removing any items of clothing.
Mabel had her own Brough Superior but sometimes preferred to pillion on a " featherbed" frame (as illustrated).
At times she liked her man to be "The Dominator" . Of course I was too young gazing down tug funnels and not up skirts (of lorries etc) . Strange you mention computer games because I picked up a "Ports of Call" dvd rom yesterday but I will not play it lest I cause a collision in the Solent. Thanks for your response Donald , I am now off to the opticians to get something done about my double vision.
