16 August 2017 - Route 54
Added 17 August 2017
A couple of pictures of First Leicester Streetdecks on route 54. As mmany are aware, I like a bit of height and take quite a few of my pictures from the top of a pole...but in this case, I prefer the lower shot.

13 August 2017 - Leicester City Transport Photo Shoot
Added 1 7 August 2017
A photo shoot with a difference, as we took a trio of former Leicester City Transport buses around Leicester and recreated scenes from the 1980s. A massive thank you to the Leicester Transport Heritage Trust for the use of their buses and for crewing them on the day, it is fair to say, nothing was too much trouble for the bus crews who were all excellent. Thanks also to the photographers who supported the event, and to my Dad and Dianne who did an excellent job throughout the shoot posing as passengers bringing the shots to life. The weather played ball too, as the forecast was to have a bit of sun at the start of the shoot and then cloud, but in the event, the sun put in several appearances throughout the shoot and we only had a couple of locations where the sun wouldn't play ball. A very enjoyable day.

11/12 August 2017 - London
Added 1 7 August 2017
An overnighter in London for some London Underground engineering trains passing through Paddington. It was nice to get a bit of cab light action :-) While I was there, it would have been rude not to take a few pictures in Paddington mainline station.

I don't very often point my camera at wildlife, but I did so on several occasions during my holiday. Here we have insects in the Walled Garden at Fellbrigg Hall, the Seal Colony at Horsey Beach and a selection of animals at the Thrigby Wildlife Gardens.

1 August 2017 - Holiday, Part Four (Sheringham Sunset)
Added 7 August 2017
While on holiday, I was keen to capture a nice sunset by the sea. The evening of 1 August proved to be quite spectacular, and not only did the sun turn the sky orange and red, but a short sharp rain shower just before sun down made all the rocks glint.
