During my sons October half term holiday we took a ride upto Derbyshire for a play on the trams @ Crich....the last time id been was on a school holiday in the mid 80's! it was a day out with Wills really but i got some interesting shots and came away knowing i must go back on my own and do it justice...Its a great place with a fantastic woodland walk with some of the best wood carving's ive ever seen. the trams are in superb condition and get rotated around during the day so theres always a good variation to shoot. In summary a must visit location for anyone interested in vintage transport....
Just a handful of the best snapshots from a quick visit to a steam festival @ Hollowell in Northamptonshire back in July 2008. There were loads of opportunites begging for shots when i look back at it...Guess it shows how your eye for a picture can improv in tiem. Hopefully this area of the site will increase in size during 2009.
Heartlink is a charity that supports the Glenfield Hospital and families with children who have serious cardiac conditions. Every year they have a steam & vintage fair @ Wymeswold in North Leics as one of their fund raising events. This was the first time i had taken the camera kit for a play, overall im pretty happy with the results and enjoyed the day & fine weather!
A David Williams charter at the National Tram Museum at Crich in Derbyshire. The theme was the Edwardian era with 2 ex Chesterfield trams 7&8 of which 8 was Horse drawn. The charter ran for 2 hours before the museum opened to the public. It was a first in two ways for me....A first at Crich & a first with re-enactors. It was a very pleasant experience, made all the better by some rather pretty Sufragettes! Thank's must go to all the re-enactors and the staff at Crich and David for running the whole show!
An unscheduled visit to Beamish during a very cold, wet & Windy June. i had planned to spend the weekend on the Farne Isles photographing the Puffins & Artic Terns, only to be turned away from the harbour due to the ferries not sailing. In truth it was the best decesion as the weather got worse as the day went on......So we changed tact and took in Beamish. As you can probably tell i wasnt that interested but took some shots to record the visit.It's now Sept and i need to clear away the backlog of images before the Autumn Steam season kicks off!......Never mind the Puffins will be back in 2012!
