Bookshop Afloat

“There’s a story waiting inside
Behind the door, as it opens wide
And I wander in, hoping to find
Something”
– “A shop with books in” by  The Bookshop Band

  1. Next time I am in London, I’ll make sure to embark on one of these barges. Was it very wobbly when you were capturing it? Love the shot and the colour of the sky.
