1751 : You Can't Say No To A Goddess


We went to the Roman Baths at Bath last week. The rain forced me to leave my camera back at the hotel, but I still had my iPhone with me. As we walked around the museum this splendid bronze head of the goddess Sulis Minerva asked me to take a selfie. You can't say no to a goddess.

1750 : Take Our Picture, Mister


It is back in the early 1980s. I was wandering around the Kelvin Hall Flats in Upperthorpe, Sheffield, looking for beauty in brutalism. I came across these two kids and their cry was "take our picture, mister". Job done.

1749 : A Street I Must have Known


This was taken in Sheffield in the early 1980s. I am not entirely sure where it is, but it is a street I must have walked down, a street I must have known.

1748 : Arthur Points The Way


This is a new scan of a negative I must have shot some thirty-seven years ago at a Yorkshire Miners' Gala in Rotherham. It was a few months before the start of the miners' strike, and there is Arthur Scargill pointing the way. Somehow it has turned itself into a sepia print - which is rather fitting perhaps.

1747 : The End Of The Line


The driver and fireman of the Scarborough Spa Express at the end of the line, Scarborough Station. Just time for a quick chat and a bite to eat, and then it's time to turn the engine around and head back west again.
