070619. 10/46, Thirty-six Views of Bath Abbey. My tribute to Hokusai‚Äôs Fugaku Sanju Rokkei

The series so far…


The “Cleopatra” in front of Bath’s Parade Garden shore and Hokusai’s Bushu Tamagawa. Right in back of the Cleopatra is where the “Roman Great Drain” empties into the Avon. It leads from the Roman Baths to the Parade Gardens, there it was extended during the medieval period. the short section that now empties into the Avon, right where the ground dips down, was built in the 1960s. The Roman brick drain is the oldest working structure in the city, and one of the oldest continuously working structures in the world. The concrete 1960s section of the drain collapsed last year….“no respect for stones.”

“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — :
‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.'” (Eliot Rosewater in God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater)-Vonnegut See clip here

“Part of the Widcombe Locks of the Kennett and Avon Canal.”

I can’t tell you more than that. I think James has returned, but he hasn’t told me yet, and he has not yet posted his usual slightly-after-midnight post, so maybe he’s not. Dear readers of Bath Daily Photo, you are EXACTLY AS INFORMED as I am. Possibly moreso.

Rover and Teneal…?

JosyC, who is still posting for Ja.mes, had no idea what this was supposed to mean, so she Wikipedia’ed it… apparently it’s a takeoff of “Captain and Tenille,” a pop singing duo from the 1970’s. Apparently they’re famous or something. JC isn’t not sure why Ja.mes has chosen to spell it “Teneal” here…. but ohhhhh well. Enjoy the photo!

A beautifully reflective window of Cleveland House (c.1800) over the Kennet and Avon Canal,
Bath and Northeast Somerset,
the Overcast Kingdom,

posted but not created by JC. This is the third time I’ve tried to post this, so if you see a double- or triple-post, I’m sorry, but I’m not fixing it.
