Wicked Woman you wrote ‘’ The lord helps those who help themselves’’ What a difference it would have made if the Judge at my recent shoplifting trial had seen it the same way :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oooh is the Hungry Years still going? Many a happy hour spent there chatting up 'fraggles' albeit somewhat herbally/chemically assisted.

Some Chilterns woodland this afternoon.

I'm not sure if the Years is still going as I stopped going when the (then) new owners changed it from a heavy rock venue to a gay club. This happened pretty much overnight and I heard that they forgot to advertise the change of music scene. They were rather surprised when one of the London Chapters of the Hells Angels came down for a weekend visit :lol: (not half as surprised as the bikers, I should think!).

Good photo!

Ha Ha NO CHANCE!
Even the Vicar doesn't get double time as she only works one day a week and under the Union agreement you can't have double time uless you've done a full 40 hour week.

With all this blasphemy coming out of my head I can see my place in heaven slipping further and further away.

Shakes head in shame!

I went a bit mad with the camera - but snow makes things so pretty!

Great close ups Batty......You must have very steady hands to get close ups that clear unless you used a tripod.

Thanks, Morty. No I don't use a tripod, I just aim the camera and slowly press the shutter! :lol:

Honestly to get that close up and to still be so sharp takes a very cool hand :wink:

Memo to myself......Never play cards with Ba.....Sorry.....Cool Hand Batty 8) 8) 8)

Hey Man this is going to be a really weird trip but I’m actually going to bring this thread back on topic....

Went for a walk a couple of miles from where I live this afternoon and as per usual took along my camera......Sorry guys it’s Holiday Photos time again........ROTF&PMSL

I’m going to dedicate this set of pictures to Dotsie.....As a fellow Mancunian she will know how dismal the River Irwell can look in the middle of Manchester. Some of the following pictures show The River Irwell in a totally different light..........

Honestly Dotsie this is the River Irwell....

Lovely photos Morty, especially the last one of the icicles on the bridge.

I have to agree Doughnut Jimmy, the one of the icicles on the bridge is fantastic. You have a great eye, Mordy, but you didn't need me to tell you that.

I played 'Spot The Longest Icicle' on the way into work on the bus this morning. The winner was one measuring around 4'6'' hanging from some eaves in Shotton Colliery.

Well done, Morty! My favourites are the bridge photo's.

Your photo's are always calming and picturesque. I do enjoy viewing them.

Wow thank you for the comments on my photos. I can't use my SLR at the moment so I’ve been using a Nikon Coolpix S640 compact that's semi permanently on loan :lol:

Loosely translated that means I don't want to give it back :lol: :lol:

It's fully automatic, easily operated with one hand and fits neatly into a pocket so I can always take it with me when I go out.

I can’t afford it but I know I’m going to end up making an offer on this camera.

Should get it at a good price now it’s officially second hand :lol: :lol: :lol:
