Battle or surrender in a gender war? by 

Tiller in hand, this beast to be guided,
this beam of tree, grasped against gravity,
eye alert, waiting for clearance,
back breaking legs pushing waters weight.

Shot at the Top Lock on the Liverpool to Leeds canal before it was closed at this point due to lack of rain. As for the subject, well it will be interesting to see which camps people will fall into :)

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.

    All I could think when I looked at this large was ‘women have odd shaped thought bubbles!’… Samson and Delilah also comes to mind! Nice bit of reportage.
