Self Portrait. Re-scan of a 35mm black and white negative I must have shot (with the help of a mirror) way back in the mid 1960s.

Sepia Saturday 281 : 30 May 2015
I am having to put this call together rather quickly as my Good Lady Wife insists that we have to make some apple pies this afternoon. How appropriate then, that we have as our theme image for Sepia Saturday 281 a 1972 archive photograph from the Flickr Col...

2015.05C-15 I was in the process of going an old memory stick away when I double-checked to see if there was anything on it. Then I found this scan of an old negative which, I fear, is long lost. That is me in about 1955 - s...

1307 : A Sense Of Peace
2015.05C-2 A classic image of the Alhambra. It was a lovely Spring day and there were hundreds, if not thousands, of visitors - but still there was a sense of peace.

A Shocking Story And A Justification For Extravagance
Many years ago, when I was tottering on the edge of total deafness, I did some work with Sheffield University testing out an experimental device for the deaf they were developing at the time. As one's hearing diminishes, any kind of auditory or pseudo-audit...

1309 : As Dark As Bodegas Should Be
2015.05C-5 It was a bodega and it was dark and cool - as bodegas should be. Outside the sun beat down on the little town of El Fondo de les Neus. And it found a way to creep into the winery.

1308 : Stop With Impunity

2015.05C-10 The fourth of the scanned glass negatives. I suspect that this is the same abbey as in the first negative and if that is the case I withdraw my suggestion that it is Bolton Abbey. One step forward, one step back.

2015.05C-11 Rescan of an old negative. It is South Lane in Elland and I must have taken the photograph using a long lens from on top of the hill. In the centre is the bowling green of Elland Working Men's Club. I am not sure...
