It was such a sunny day that I took my Camera with me as I walked in to my local home town -

The ones at towards the end use the fish-eye lens.

If you have a slow dial up the best way to see them is to click the first icon and then keep clicking the *NEXT* link at the top of each page and NOT to go back and see the icons.

Roger, what a lovely town you live in, looks absolutely charming. You need to get those paints out you have plenty of material right in your own backyard. Thanks for sharing your town. Lovely

P.S. Received the disk the other day. Thank you.

Wow, Roger! I'm comin' to visit YOU!! :wave:

What a gorgeous place. I can see some pics for Doug, with the shadows and the bricks....!

I love the one through the lych-gate (sp?) with the fish-eye lens.


Thanks for sharing these. I agree with Judy, get those brushes out!!

Aaah - I lived in Wokingham until about 3 years ago. It takes me back. I now live somewhere less pretty (ie the local river has been concreted!). Thank you for sharing these.

Gallons of thanks for the positive responses they are all a great lift to me.

I would love to be picking up my brushes but events keep theating to overwelm me. [Sigh] Nothing major but the reason I walked into town was to get vacinations for a sudden and unexpected (work) trip to India. I have never been before and I have had to rush around booking plane tickets and filling in forms and (actully I got Susan to do the filling in) to apply for a visa to Inida. On the form I had to put my mothers place of birth!.

The bathroom has just been re-modeled and I have had to redecorate it and put back all the fittings and of course my customer is strangely expecting me to do WORK :) :)

Hopefuly it will mean some good photos to share.

But I want some time to paint. :(

Thanks again for the responses they such a welcome read.

Hi Roger

I really enjoyed the tour around your town, its many years since I was there.

And good Cod, your fish eye lens pics are interesting...as you know strong vertical subjects are required for this format...great stuff

Roger - not wanting to be an ole hen, I wanted to query whether you were advised to take malaria prophylaxis
for your trip to India. I worked in the malaria research field for more'n a dozen years, so it crossed my mind that you neglected to mention tabs along with your vaccinations. Malaria is still among the hard hitters!

Enjoy!

Zoe - How kind of you to think of my health -yes - I have boxes of tablets Chloraquinine and Proquariel enough for the week before the trip, the trip and a month after. I leave on the 12th Nov. I wonder if the world we will know who is going to be the next US Priesident by then. :) :)

Susan and I happend to be in Florida four years ago :) :) Somehow I don't think a close thing this time will be good for anybody anywhere. Too many lawers all posied to strike. Anyway, I should not be turning this into an 'election' thread. :(

Roger - so glad you have the tabs. Everyone in my lab experienced one bout of non-human variant malaria - it wasn't pretty :( - but me. Perhaps I am immune.

And these elections have caused a massive number of unroars among friends and foes alike. I am hoping for a new President :evil: but don't tell the opposition or we'll start a WC riot :cat:

Be safe, travel well and most of all enjoy. India is a fascinating place and take some "elephant" pictures for Kev and Chris.
