Came on this old print of Christ Church Shortly after it was built. Notice that next door down the hill was not built then.
Was it taken by the photographer that lived across the road I wonder?

Put a photo I took of Pete Cornish on the two photo sites. It was well received by a lot of folk that knew him

Put a big pic of my friendly crow on the comp, with the following, it will be interesting to see what happens.

I have put a big picture of a crow on my computer as a background.
Why you might ask. Well until I has a stroke we had become quite frenziedly and it would come down vary close to my door to feed as I sat with the door open.
Just about 6 feet away from where I sat.
Now you can hardly speak about a wild bird as a friend, but we have an acquaintance between the two of us.
When I was allowed back home it took a little while but once more it accepts me as a fixture and I have passed within 10 or 12 feet of it when trundling along in my invalid electric chair.
I think it has become used to seeing me and realises I mean it no harm.
In acknowledgement I found one of the pictures of it taken before my stroke in '66 and I am using it as a background on my computer.
If anyone wants to copy it and do the same thing they are welcome to use it.

Put a puzzler on the picture websites

Looking through my infra-red pics on Morguefile and found these two shots.
One has has been down loaded 28 times and the other 56 times.
Which do you prefer?
Both shots are from the same original picture so the only difference is the colour.
It will be interesting to see if the results are the same on both sites.

The old railway bridge near Kenn.
Still standing because it carries the road to the Lower Stroud Road and to the small holdings and to Kingston Seymoor.
This picture was taken with my converted camera that will take only infra-red monochrome pictures.
After having fought a series of battles taking infra-red shots using a filter on the front of the camera which meant taking 3 different exposures to hopefully get one that would come out OK, I gave up and had my Sony 350 converted to take only Infra-red shots.
Now it’s easy – One snap and the picture is there.
All I need to do, is to change it to grey tones instead of red.

Tried a little stir this morning.

Pictures can be found almost any place if we keep our eyes open.
After all what can be more mundane than an electric light post let alone a row of them.
But these caught my eye – balance by the bushes on the distant right and going to ?.
The mist cut superfluous detail and isolated them perfectly.
Snap and there was another picture caught.
Forget the seafront – one picture of a wave is almost like another one.

Just carry a camera and most important - - look around for your for picturs.
