It could almost be a song title. The date is May, 2011. By the dubious magic of my time travelling blog we have landed in the Cumbrian town of Keswick in the “drink in with your eyes gorgeous” Lake District. I admit that this may not be the prettiest part of the town and I’ll be revisiting with more sumptuous images later but I was intrigued by the name. I […]
lachlanscameraUK resident, in north west Lancashire. It was time for a career change and a lifelong interest in photography has opened up a new path with new challenges. As well as submissions to photo libraries and magazines I'm also putting together a selection of e-book titles through Amazon Kindle.
A little to the east of Manchester is Ashton under Lyne, nestling by the Pennine Hills. My time travelling blog has brought you here on a brisk day in February 2012.

Sorting out a few last bits and pieces from my journey out to Holywell last autumn. It’s always an interesting experience finding a place to eat when I’m out and about. I do a bit of looking up on the internet before I go to a place I’ve never visited or haven’t visited for a while but generally I follow my nose when I drop into a place. On the […]
Thanks to ‘that’ virus I’m still time travelling ( wibbley wobbley timey wimey etc ) through my back catalogue until normality returns. So by the magic of the internet let me whisk you back top 2013 and the city of Chester. I know Chester pops up fairly often in my blogging, it’s a combination of it being easy to get to and it being a fascinating place. You can travel […]
