1095 : A Pattern Not A Picture


This might have been Cleethorpes or it might have been Skegness. It was about thirty years ago. The details don't matter because it is a pattern and not a picture.

1094 : Never Cross Near Parked Cars



Still "on the front" in Cleethorpes. The big wheel attendants wait for customers, but nobody crosses near parked cars. Nobody crosses at all.

1093 : Seaside Drive


Who could possibly not want to jump on that cart and ride out into the mud banks?

1092 : The Delight of Rediscovery


You know what it is like when you are out taking photographs. Sometimes the light and the mood just seem to come together in a strange harmony. That day back in the 1980s when I took a series of photographs of Cleethorpes was one such day. It is delight to rediscover the negatives.

1090 : Cleethorpes Pier


I know I said that I was going to leave the scans of my old medium format negatives until later in the year. but it is cold and grey outside and I don't feel like pretty colours and smiling suns. So here we are, back in monochrome, back in Cleethorpes, back in the mid 1980s.

1089 : Yore Mill, Aysgarth


I took this picture last weekend during our visit to the Yorkshire Dales. The mill is Yore Mill, in Aysgarth, a wonderful 18th century Grade II listed mill on the banks of the River Ure. Just up and down river from this point are the equally famous Aysgarth falls.

1088 : Malham Barn


As you walk back from Malham Cove - and if you are energetic enough, Malham Tarn - there is an old barn on the hillside. There is something about the shape of it which is so Yorkshire Dales.

1087 : Malham Beck


Malham Beck emerges from the rocks at the foot of Malham Cove and then flows south to join the River Aire. It was warm this weekend and after a lengthy walk up from the car park in the village, Amy - who is not best fond of water in any form - paddled in the river to cool down.

1086 : Ribblehead Viaduct


It's is time to catch up with some recent photographs. We go away in five weeks town, but until them I will showcase some recent photographs and I will return to the old black and white scans later in the year. This picture was taken less than 24 hours ago and shows the magnificent Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle railway line.
