Crich Tramway Village is only a few miles from here and it’s somewhere I really should visit more often… This pic of Leeds City Tramways No.399 was actually taken on Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day last year, at the same time as the one posted here.

An image from one of my current favourite cameras, the Minolta X-700…

I’d love to know how a man born in Odessa in the Ukraine in 1823 (then part of Imperial Russia) ended up buried in the small Derbyshire village of Pentrich (best known for the Pentrich Revolution of 1817).

Another image from the Nikon TW20 today…

Great Northern Basin on the Cromford Canal at Langley Mill in Derbyshire. I say ‘Cromford Canal’ but the basin was originally part of the mostly abandoned Nottingham Canal that passed under what is now the A608 road just to the right of The Great Northern pub, visible in the background.

Monochrome Monday… Cobweb Bridge, Sheffield

I’ve mentioned my fondness for twin lens (rather than zoom lens) 35mm compact camera before and this roll of Kosmo Foto Mono film has been lurking in one, the Nikon TW20, for a while.

Opened in 2002 the Cobweb Bridge was designed by Sheffield City Council’s Structures Section and carries the Five Weirs Walk under the Wicker Arches railway viaduct while linking one bank of the River Don to the other. The web of steel support wires give the bridge its name. Just visible overhead are the large steel spiders that conceal the lighting.
