An image from a sheet of negatives I’d misplaced until tonight…

High Stacks, Flamborough Head, photographed during a ‘Photography Friday’ outing in August last year. Flamborough (and nearby Bridlington) is an area Rachel knows well and we’ve had a few excellent days up there.

My Olympus OM-2N started to suffer from a sluggish shutter towards the end of this roll but I’ve since had it serviced by the excellent PPP Repairs and can’t wait to use it again!

Another image from August’s madcap day trip to Leith… This shadow caught my eye during a wander along the Shore of Leith towards the end of the day (and just before stopping for a couple of beers at the Granary).

Another image from a trip to Portobello and Leith in August.

I love how the shadow falls in this alley off Bernard Street in Leith. The double yellow lines seem like overkill in an alley barely wide enough for a car!

My partner in crime on most of my photographic jaunts these days (Hi Rachel!) can often predict what I’ll excitedly photograph on our outings… This scrapyard sign in Leith was one such item… Scrap yard? Check! Rusty barbed wire? Check! Something that’s seen better days? Check!

I must point out here that the Port of Leith is a lovely place to visit, we spent a fantastic day there this summer just wandering about, snapping away and drinking beer… There was indeed ‘Sunshine on Leith’.

Monochrome Monday… Sheringham Lifeboat Museum

The Sheringham Lifeboat Museum, seen here on a glorious September afternoon. The museum houses the Henry Ramey Upcher, the second private lifeboat (replacing the Augusta) to be stationed in Sheringham. Launched on 4 September 1894 she stayed on station for 41 years until she was slowly retired from duty and by 1935 the RNLI Liverpool-class vessel J C Madge had replaced her on rescue work.

Heritage railways are full of interesting items to photograph: the trains themselves, the architecture, the people (staff and visitors alike) and the myriad small details that make up a scene of days gone by…

This bicycle was sitting under the platform canopy at Sheringham station on the North Norfolk Railway during my visit there a few weeks ago and I couldn’t resist a snap whilst waiting for my train.

Another shot taken with a charity shop find Tamron Adaptall-2 35-70mm f/3.5 lens mounted on my Nikon FE2. A steamboat chuffs its way along the Trent & Mersey Canal at Shardlow during a recent(ish) ‘Photography Friday’ jaunt.
