Quote:I hadn't noticed many tourist photographers

They were parking at the side of the road and walking onto peoples properties to take photos of the fields. The residents were happy for the press to be there but were not so pleased with the tourists. I use the word tourist as the ones I saw were not local people.

Silly me: I should have said I hadn't noticed any tourist photographers apart from me of course; sorry my M got in the way.

These days, everyone can be a "press" photographer and newspapers are happy to take images from punters because they don't have to pay for them.

Most publications have now fired their staff photographers and the freelance rates are in free-fall.

I fear for my roof, been fixed twice already and I can feel it quivering in fear now... Grin

From a photographic point of view only, Winchester Cathedral's crypt actually looks good flooded, but I dont think for one moment that would be a bonus for them :-(

Best use I can think of for a cathedral...sorry no time for pompous, war initiating, religious control of the masses...still, if they'd not built it we wouldn't have the photo attractiveness I suppose...

Peter, the canoe in your pic seems to have neither a parking-paid ticket nor a penalty notice. What negligence!

A real example of what folks are still, or will be sufferingSad

Boston 2013

No glib comments please about insurance -this is the real world, where sometimes the difference between paying insurance and putting food on the table, makes life tolerable

As far as I have seen to press, the properties affected in the Surrey/Berks area are all worth millions and the owners, however put out by the floods, will be able to resume life as normal in the near future

Somerset levels - nothing done
Tory heartland - let's get the armed forces out etc; How about Cameron's promise of people getting K5 to assist with the damage, being diverted to the folks who are still suffering from the 2013 issues?

What does someone who lives in a property valued at say Million2 and possibly earn in excess of 100K a year need the 5K for

Give it to the poor folks of this country, who are suffering just as much, but don't have the clout to do owt about it
