Chorley. A Blooming Good Show.

It’s about an hour’s drive away from where I live so it’s an easy destination to make for with my camera.

Edinburgh. City At Festival Time.

  A few days ago I took a train journey up to one of my favourite destinations, Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh. Scotland’s a place I have been travelling to for many years, my connection being my late father who was a Scot from the Lanarkshire area. The reason, or excuse for this latest trip was that fact that the Edinburgh Festival which always adds an extra dimension to the attractions […]
