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-3 How convenient that "stop" in Spanish means "stop". Just imagine the chaos that would ensue if it meant "carry on 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...

2015.05C-8 The third of my twelve glass negatives. This one adds little to the quest to identify dates and places, but it does clearly show what we missed before colour photography came along. This must have looked stunning ...

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...

1306 : A Spirituality Wash
2015.05C-1 Granada Cathedral, as sun-bleached as the buildings surrounding it but with that little bit more gravitas. All that spirituality, I suppose.

2015.05C-9 I have just come by a small collection of unused postcards dating back to the first two or three decades of the twentieth century. The theme of the collection seems to be old churches and country houses. This one ...
