The funny highlight of the shot is the white bird head peeking from its
shelter. I am not sure if it was trying to take a peek or to photo-bomb
your otherwise "classic" tranquil image.
Did Godfrey work as the "trap" for it?
BTW, the webpage layout is a bit annoying: it has this empty white space
on the left, requiring to scroll the page to the right to see the
photograph. There is some weird table structure in the webpage design that
forcing that empty space. (I am vaguely remembering that I may have
commented on that earlier. If so, - I am sorry for repeating it.)
As for "Thames", that often brings up this old joke that I remember
since my childhood:
(Being lazy to type it up, I've found this, slightly different but very
similar version on the Internet)
The Master of the house is comfortably installed in an armchair in the
library, reading a newspaper. Suddenly, John, his butler rips the door
open and shouts, "Sir, the Thames is flooding the streets!" The Master
looks up calmly from the newspaper and says: "John, please. I have already
told you before, if you do have something important to tell me, first
knock on the door, then enter and inform me, in a quiet and civilized
manner, about the issue. Now please, do so." John apologizes and closes
the door behind him. Three seconds later, the Master hears a knock on the
door. "Yes?" John partially enters the room and with a gesture one would
make when welcoming and ushering in somebody and water flowing over his
shoes, he announced, "Sir, the Thames."

Had the pleasure of Godfrey's company at the weekend as he arrived for a
short visit on his British travels. We managed a little outing on Saturday
and enjoyed a walk by the river, here is my offering from the day.
