Continuing yesterday's blog, I always wanted to learn the piano but wasn't able to through childhood. As an adult I learned for a while, then other things crowded it out and now, finally, I'm back to that learning process and picking up where I left off. That's one aspect of music, but equally well there are so many different styles, eras, artists and I would have loved to have been more involved in it all. Being chairman of the Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons Appreciation Society in the 1970s let me see all sorts of insights, but the process never stops. Being chairman now of the Atherton & District Amateur Photographic Society makes me think it must be fate that I only get involved with organisations will Infeasibly Long Names. No wonder we call it ADAPS for short.

So, if music be indeed be the food of love, let's play on and catch up with some more music related images.

Historic Tyldesley - The Technical College

There is a road sign that says "Welcome to Historic Tyldesley" or something similar, and for a while we scratched our heads wondering what excatly was historic about Tyldesley. Well, slap on the hand for us, because there are plenty of things that w...

Buile Hill Greenhouse - Progress Report

We were down at Buile Hill Park in Salford today, just to see how the mansion and the Greenhouse were getting along. The mansion is under restoration at the moment, but the greenhouse was set to be demolished. This was such a wonderful place, with bi...

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
