The Photography Show 2019

And yet another fine show from TPS, with lots to see and the chance to meet up with a couple of old friends and a few new ones. Sue and I travelled down by car (essential really to pay for parking online) and took the bus into the NEC. TPS was actually not too busy today, perhaps because it was a Sunday. There were plenty of visitors, but not the crushing crowds that we have come to expect on a Saturday. Most of the expected manufacturers were there, but it seems that a few people were missing, the most notable perhaps being Pentax/Ricoh.

I did shoot a few images on my Pentax MX-1, so here's a selection to give an idea of the flavour of the event. We enjoyed it and we'll be back next year without a doubt.

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...

Many years ago, about 25 ! , I regularly visited Focus On Imaging and Sunday was always a busy day, not quite as much as Saturday though.

The best days for wandering around were Monday or Tuesday BUT all " Keynote" Talks / Seminars / Workshops were on the Saturday.

Will take a guess and say the aeroplane image on the Nikon stand was by Moose Peterson
