I just found this little photo of my youngest dog, Toffee, he is all grown up now. He loved to make friends when he was a puppy, he still does, but he was fearless then……not so much now, he is a little bit more cautious. I wish I had the follow up photo to the sniff, it was a kiss from Toffee to the big nose which was sniffing him…….I wondered if big dog was thinking ‘Dinner’
On of my favourite places, Landsberg am Lech, in Bavaria, Southern Germany. I have taken numerous amounts of photos of this enchanting town, lots of which I have posted before, so this time they have had the mono treatment. I am just experimenting with them, as the shapes of the buildings seem to lend themselves to black and white .
Sorting through some of the last of my 2015 photos, I came across a trip to Margate on the Kent coast. The trip took place on the 25th October, just look at the weather, beautiful for that time of the year. We were visiting with family……..they had a terrible job pulling me away from the bikes, I’m not even sure what kind of bikes they are. I just love taking action photos, you never know what’s going to happen, and the race was a surprise, as we had no idea it was taking place. Later on in the day, we walked back along the beach, and it was as if nothing had ever happened, not a tyre mark to be seen.
Sheringham Railway Station, in Norfolk, is one of my favourite haunts for taking photos. Normally there are steam trains, but on this day in 2017, it was a diesel locomotive at work. I switched my attention to the human element in making a train station run smoothly and a wonderful job they do and will go into my ‘Occupation Category’ I have left the last photo coloured, as the station is really something of a bygone age and looks equally good in b&w and colour.
