A Walk from Bradford on Avon to Bath

For several years, I've had one last Kodak Ektachrome 100D Super 8 film cartridge in cold storage, never quite sure what to do with it. Should I sell it off? An attractive idea, given how much prices for this beautiful film stock have gone up since its discontinuation in late 2012. Or use it for a project of my own? And if so, what kind of project? - The recent bright sunshine and sumptuous spring colours finally gave me the idea: why not walk with my camera along the Kennet & Avon Canal all the way from Bradford on Avon to Bath? And that's exactly what I did on Tuesday 22 May. It was a leisurely four and a half hour walk, including a late lunch break at the 'George' in Bathampton. The pictures are presently waiting to be processed and digitized.
The film - assuming it's worked out alright - will be a prequel, so to speak, to my film A Walk from Bath to Bristol that I shot back in 2008, which follows the same National Cycle Route 4 that starts in London and goes all the way to the West Coast of Wales, passing through Devizes, Bradford on Avon, Bath, Bristol and Swansea on the way.
