One of several old negatives scanned recently from the late 70s or early 80s and presented, so as to give an indication of my era and great age!
I remember that there were some trees growing in some of these vehicles, so perhaps the pictures aren’t quite as old as I suggest. Car graveyards like this are very sad places. Sad pictures from a sad old git.
This photo must have been taken in the late 80s and is a scan from a film negative.
I was working in Staffordshire, England, at the time and have only the vaguest memory of the location of this scrapyard.
On our return from visiting family at Easter we travelled home via the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on a wet and dreary day after some heavy snow in Sheffield. We always seem to be passing through this wonderful area on our way to somewhere else.
A picture taken using my new phone.
One from the files that I think was taken on Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, England. It is in a desktop folder where there is a collection of related tree and forest photos, though this one is on the reserve list as far as exhibition work is concerned.
A montage of three views of the Yorkshire town of Whitby.
Snow on the Lake District hills. A midwinter mountain Twilight.
Hmmm, I’m not too sure where this was taken, perhaps it was in the hills north of Sheffield or maybe it was close to Skipton. Now both of those locations are in Yorkshire, but I have a vague feeling that this could be a part of the Peak District of Derbtshire. Either way, the hills are a part of the Pennine range that runs up the backbone of England.
Vague feelings are becoming more prevalent it must be admitted…
Two contrasting scenes of back roads, the first in Badami, Karnataka, India, the second In Earby, England.
Not comparable really are they. Surely there aren’t too many towns that are built under the face of a cliff while there are many 19th century urban developments similar to the view below.
We certainly felt the chill of the buffeting wind on this breezy day on the Cornish Coast at The Lizard Point.
I think that this is probably the last picture for the time being that was taken at the Victorian Town at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum and it shows a portrait of the harness maker in his workshop.
