Ah the wonder of the still camera, or is it my lack of skill. Whilst this looks like a train stopped at a station it isn't. I missed the most important part. I think the Rollei got a good picture but that will take time to process.
No this is a steam train going through Denton train station. Not only is it rare for Denton station to see trains (only one stops here a day and you have to flag it down... it's true honest) but this is a steam train.
On the way home from B&Q we spotted this train stopped on a bridge, thinking it may go through Denton we rush to get this picture. Just as this train got to Denton a freight train passed us this side of the track hence the delay in taking the picture missing the engine. Denton truly was blessed with not one but two trains all at once.
As you can see my skills shone out at this moment, struggling to take a picture with my phone and taking several with the Rollei, the one decent one I got with the phone has my finger in shot at the bottom. Nice work.
A bad picture of Peel Park in Salford. Nice park, poor picture. The University is behind me.
The river Irwell, nothing much of interest in many ways. The last couple of days have been a little hazy and this sort of highlights this.
I don't quite understand this sign. Well I understand what it says but not why it goes into so much detail about someone's future intent. You can find these in the University of Salford where we went today to go to the Salford Art Gallery and Museum.
More archive footage. Unlike the last time archive footage was shown; this week has been rather busy. This picture is of my old Citroen ZX before it was sold for a knock down price. With a shine up like this I'd have bought it for the money, though I can't afford to run three cars at once, not when the tax man is watching anyway.
Main problems this week is lack of time and lack of a really good podcasting client... time to write one myself, which is what happened with this photoblog. Anyway is it a blog, photoblog a journal or just a website... let the media decide.
This picture was going to go into something like AutoTrader though it never happened because someone driving past couldn't beleive their luck. End of.
Taken with the DV5 if you hadn't guessed, with a few bits airbrushed out.
Picture 2 of the reservoir a nice little picture of symmetry I think and a with a gate that is specially designed for small people. This means that the council needs to employ people of around 2-3 feet high for working on this part of the reservoir.
After finding how to adjust the contrast on the phone camera it took a reasonable shot of this rather ornate bit of a reservoir that I didn't know existed just about a half a mile away from my house.
After the excitement of Cleveleys comes the excitement of a Sqirrel, yes life doen't get this more exciting, for a reall buzz I think I'll perhaps go on the swings.
