We have a sandwich in the canal-side pub – there are pictures on the wall. One of them catches my eye – it’s clearly a view of the nearby locks and bridge, but I can’t get it to work in my mind.
We walk outside and try to find the viewpoint.
the vantage point
halfway up a flight of locks
but off to one side
the artist has hedged his bets
and yet he tried
perspective shifts, colours wrong
