Slide Film Sunday… Little Ruddington

Little Ruddington, September 1999Little Ruddington, September 1999

An image from September 1999 for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

And an image that made me chuckle when I spotted it whilst looking for something else entirely!

‘Little Ruddington’ is a station on the miniature railway at what was then the Nottingham Transport Heritage Centre (now the Nottingham Heritage Railway) and I just liked the combination of sign and scaled down London & North Eastern Railway class A2 4-6-2 steam locomotive 60532 ‘BLUE PETER’ (7.25 inch gauge I think).

I’m slowly gaining confidence when it comes to candid/street photography, it’s a slow process as although cameras are now commonplace, people seem to be far more wary of them.

Market day in Mansfield was a good place to practise though, folks were far more interested in getting their fruit and veg!

My ‘Photography Friday’ outings with Rachel have been fewer and farther between this year but we’ve managed the occasional stroll with our cameras and the above image is from one such outing…

I think this sorry looking specimen was once a Ford Transit van and I certainly don’t imagine there are any salvageable parts here!

The Nottingham Canal hasn’t seen a boat in many years so a covering of ice was only causing a problem for the ducks on this particular February day…
