What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the business premises of H.O. Bowley Ltd, Hosiery & fabrics in Loughborough during a stroll to the (sadly now closed) Tap & Mallet pub on Nottingham Road.

I really should do more of this kind of photography… even if wandering the streets at night can get you a reputation! 😁

Slide Film Sunday… POW ITALIAN

An image from November 2003 for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

Yet again I’ve no notes as to the camera or film used for the above pic but I’m reasonably sure it was taken using a Nikon F75, AF NIKKOR 24-85mm f/2.8-4D and Fujichrome Sensia film.

This inscription could (can?) be found atop a gate post in the Yorkshire village of Wensley and is believed to have been made during World War Two by a work party from one of the nearby prisoner of war camps.

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 and Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

I can’t explain why this image keeps catching my eye as I scroll through Lightroom, it just does…
