Wot? No pictures?

As I type this Flickr is still undergoing its site maintenance involving the moving of everyone’s accounts, pictures etc. (billions of photos and videos, and over 100 million accounts!) across to a new hosting platform. I think it was scheduled to take 12 hours, but like many IT projects, is taking a little while longer than originally planned. As such I can’t get at my photos to add them in the normal way so, instead, here’s one I’ve uploaded directly.

Note: This isn’t meant to be a metaphor for Flickr’s account migration project. 🙂FIM - Planet Circus

A lovely day at the seaside

“Bracing”, that’s the word we use to describe those seaside walks in bitterly cold wind.

This day however was far from bracing – it was taken back in February during an unseasonably warm period.  Good old climate change, eh? At least we’ll get some nice warm days at the seaside in the middle of the winter before the sea swamps the place altogether so we can never visit it again.

A couple of churches

My slide re-scanning has continued again today. Here’s a double-helping of churches from the roll (there’re a couple more on the roll too, but they’ve either not been post-processed yet, or I’ve already posted them here when I did the original flatbed scans).

The first is St. Michael’s and All Angels church at Brodsworth (this was taken from the grounds of Brodsworth Hall – there’s a gate into the churchyard, but I don’t think it’s accessible for visitors to the hall).

The second is St. Mary’s church at Boston Spa and is another phot I took after visiting the camera fair.

An autumn morning in Boston Spa

A photo that’s around 18-months old now at the time of posting. It was taken at Boston Spa in North Yorkshire. They have a camera fair there several times a year, and I’d decided to visit. The morning was lovely and crispy, as the best autumn mornings are, and the light was lovely. This was my first (and so far only) roll of slide film, although that will change when I get around to shooting the roll of Ektachrome that is waiting patiently in the fridge.

Freemason’s lodge

I noticed this building when in Wakefield recently. The symbol in the decorative pediment identifies it as a freemason’s lodge and it has attractive features as a building. A tilt-shift lens would be very useful for shots such as these but, alas, I don’t have one (nor can I justify the expense either), so the picture is stuck with the converging verticals.

I’m presuming that a staircase runs from the left to the right of the upper floor to account for the different sized windows,
