Amazingly, as I waked by 221B Baker Street on March 1, I found it all cordoned off and the side-walk on fire ! An Arlo moment for sure. You can see the 'Blue Plaque' denoting Sherlock Holmes' residence to the right.

I could not make this up if I tried.

Tomb of St. Cuthbert, Durham Cathedral

Wood and glass in Durham Cathedral by Curly

Posted on 2017-08-04

This is the apse of Durham Cathedral behind the High Altar. Fantastic stained glass and wooden sculptured artwork. On the left in the wooden structure is the final resting place of Saint Cuthbert and the head of King (Saint) Oswald, the very reason why this Norman Cathedral was built.

Colour me happy!!!

Colour me happy!!! by Sarito

Posted on 2016-06-23

My first ever Colour run. It was great fun.

Preparing my 60D for the event was quite challenging. Using duct tape and food bags (two layers) I made the camera dust proof. But, the arrangement made it difficult to operate the camera especially zooming, although I left enough space for the lens to move forward and backward. Also, the LCD screen was quite hard to see through via two layers of plastic.

After all that I must say that I am happy with the results :).

5K Colour Run, London.

Les murs de Glasgow 2

Les murs de Glasgow 2 by Mireille T.

Posted on 2016-04-04

As I was walking in Glasgow (Scotland) with my French students on a school trip, we discovered amazing wall paintings. The people I asked said that Glasgow Council had ordered these murals to embellish the city in 2014, on the occasion of the Commonwealth Games." The four Seasons", by Australian artist Smug, Sam Bates is particularly eye catching. We enjoyed looking for other paintings on walls. It made our day in Glasgow a wonderful time!

Dewdrop

Dewdrop by Spike

Posted on 2016-03-21

I figured I hadn't played with the mirror lens for a while, so took it down to the beach. This little character - common sandpiper, I think - was at the water's edge, but with the tide nearing its peak, she hopped up onto this rock and parked there for the next half hour or so, just watching the tide turn and the sun set. Every so often a wave would splash onto her, but she seemed perfectly happy there. Severn Beach.

Yes I know it'S not a fiddle but playing the cello doeSn'T work ! The young cellist is sat busking in a place called penniless porch near the cathedral in Well, it was built around 1460 and was named for beggars who used to ply their trade there, and to this day it's not unusual to find someone busking in there.

Skateboard park, South Shields

Gettin' down with the kids #5 by Curly

Posted on 2015-07-21

A short picture story of a walk along the seafront and beaches of South Shields on a balmy summer evening.

This is the skateboard park on Sandhaven Beach, always popular with kids and teenagers in South Shields, anytime of the year.

I think the low down angle of view adds a lot to the documentary style of this shot.

Ollie Taylor one of the four riders I recently spent the weekend with in their successful attempt to break the world record for a four man relay to ride non-stop on bicycles from John O'Groats to Lands End (The length of mainland Britain). After 43 Hours 46 minutes they arrived at to Lands End having cycled 875 miles and breaking the record, an incredible achievement

Inside the Greenwich Foot Tunnel

Greenwich Foot Tunnel by Ian Smith

Posted on 2018-02-05

Opened in 1902, and not much has been done to it since (except maybe the electric lighting), this is one of a few foot tunnels that allow pedestrians to cross beneath the River Thames (though most of the others are now closed).

Ray Stewart Great City Games 2015

Ray Stewart Great City Games.

World class athletics on a purpose built track in the heart of Manchester City Centre, held every May. It's a great idea and an outstanding spectator event, with one small problem. As of 2016 the event was moved from Saturday to Friday meaning those of us with weekday commitments, for example a day job, have a much lesser chance to attend.

Excellent.

Blink of an Eye

Blink of an Eye by Avian Grey

Blink of an Eye
Well, not quite - herons have two eyelids to each eye.

Additional to the usual eyelid, they have an inner lid (closed in the right image) which is transparent and still allows vision. The purpose is to wipe water from the eye surface in a 'splash' situation and it is said to also correct for refraction on water surfaces when stabbing for a fish below . . smart, huh ?

Pembroke Castle

Pembroke Castle by Doug

Posted on 2015-07-17

We really enjoyed going round this stunning old castle that was the birthplace of Henry VII in 1457. The first castle on the site dates back to the 9th Century but the stone one we see here was begun in the 12th Century.

Perhaps it could also be titled "get me to the church on time".
Church Street in Whitby was crowded with hundreds of people making their way to the bottom of the 199 steps, before climbing up to see St. Mary's and the old abbey ruins.

Nunney Castle

Nunney Castle by Doug

Posted on 2018-05-06

Nunney Castle is a medieval castle at Nunney in the English county of Somerset. Built in the late 14th century by Sir John Delamare on the profits of his involvement in the Hundred Years War, the moated castle's architectural style, possibly influenced by the design of French castles, has provoked considerable academic debate. Remodelled during the late 16th century, Nunney Castle was damaged during the English Civil War

Arbeia Roman Fort, South Shields

"Fight School" V (Silly Tuesday edition) by Curly

Posted on 2017-10-17

"Severus" is a silly boy, almost had his arm severed in his previous bout, but he's daft enough to go in and "have another go". Simon Cowell and his panel of judges are stupidly impressed :-)

Re-enactment of Roman soldiers training to fight like Gladiators at Arbeia Roman Fort on The Lawe, South Shields.

Retired miller relaxing in front of his house

The retired miller by Mike Barr

Posted on 2016-04-26

We had spent a couple of hours photographing an old water mill when we discovered that it had become disused only a few years ago when the miller retired. He had abandoned the mill but still lived nearby in what had long been the millers cottage. The man, relaxed and at peace with the world, sitting in his garden, seemed to me to be so much more interesting than the old water mill.

Waiting

Sunset by Marian

Posted on 2015-10-05

Watched the sunset in Holyhead, where a thick cloud base over the sea meant that it was over and done with in seconds. Saw this scene as we were on our way home. A local photographer who was there was waiting to see if the geese flew over the area, as they often did at that time in evening. It would have been the icing on the cake if they had done so :)
