Cow Herd

Cow Herd

A scene that was taken as we drove through the desert area in the Little Rann of Kutch in Gujarat.

I also caught some pictures back in the village when the herd was being brought back for the night and these can be seen here on my previous blog.

Pickering

Pickering

A slightly different view of the steam train standing at Pickering Station recently on the basis that you can’t have enough pictures of such subject matter particularly as it recreates one of the joys of my childhood, that of standing at the side of the track waiting with growing excitement as the sound of a steam engine grows into a thunderous roar as it hurtles past with an express……… yes!

 

Blakemore’s Shop

Blakemoore's Shop

This is Blakemore’s¬†grocery store and is one of many Victorian period shops at the Blists Hill Museum at Ironbridge in Shropshire. This is one of a series of images taken on our visit here with the family, so there are more to come.

 

Station Scene

Station Scene

The National Railway Museum at York is just fabulous though many of the displays are quite difficult to photograph. One of the exhibition buildings is laid out as a terminal station and in this picture I couldn’t resist the temptation to add a bit of atmosphere in the form of steam and smoke. It would be good if the museum could do this, as well as some sound effects of a station in the days of steam. Then it really would have that atmosphere that I remember so well!

 

Dusk Light

Dusk Light

There were several incidents on our Kerala Backwaters boat trip that caused lengthy delays which was fortuitous as we caught the most wonderful sunset and returned to port after dark.

It was a sunset where the sky changed dramatically by the minute and this is one of the many pictures taken that day that still lurk unseen in my files.
