In preparation...Number 13

Yes, the thirteenth edition of the ADAPS Year Book is nearing completion! It normally get done around march or April, ready for release before the club's AGM in May, but with Corinavirus striking it's proven very difficult to get the images in. In fact, everything has seemed slow this year and I wonder if it's a frame of mind we get into, where nothing is happening, so everything we do slows down to fill the available time. But finally we have progress and some really grteat pictures have been e-mailed in to me from a wide variety of beginners to experts. It goes to show that the beginners are sometimes better photographers than the experts, but that's the equalising nature of digital photography. Hopefully it keeps everyone on their toes, no complacency allowed!

So, no sneak previews of our members' excellence, and no clues given as to what surprises might lie between the covers of our now teenage Year Book, but hopefully no teenage tantrums from it either! Here's a picture or two instead of a group of ADAPS members, just so you can see what a good looking group we are!

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...

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...
