    The theme for June now closed.

    The theme for July is LOCAL.

    Post your images as replies to this post. (Make sure you’ve read the Guidelines first.)

    You don’t need to go far to photograph your locality so there’s plenty of scope for everyone. Of course it’s all relative to where you are. So let’s see a bumper month of thought provoking photographs which show your location as it’s never been seen before.
    Sorry I’m a day late as I forgot there wasn’t a 31st June!

    Don’t forget if you would like to suggest a topic for the ‘Monthly Theme’ please email it to me.
    Remember – only post photos taken between 1st.July 31th.July 2015

    I do not know if this counts. This was taken this evening so it was local to me at this moment.

    I would say, yes! Make as wide a reading of the theme as is reasonable if you wish. Remember how Ron used to kick off his project titles with “look it up in the dictionary” and find alternative meanings. I expect at least some pub pictures too!

    As I said about this photograph on Flickr: very inviting! And beautiful light.

    For such a small town, Sandbach has a large number of locals. Here are some of them…

    (The picture above has four locals in the one shot.)

    I like your take on ‘locals Ian. I didn’t realise Sandbach was so local.
    Ken. that really shows the power of the 500mm lens. it brings local closer still.

    Having read of the Duchess of Sunderland’s visit to Crewe in the Events page I decided to see if I could capture a glimse of it in the Heritage centre on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, It had left on a jolly. So I just wondered around taking a few snaps that I’ve posted below. However, after speaking to some of the friendly staff they told me a steam engine called Leandra was due in from Carnforth, but it had been delay by several hours. Then they said it had been cancelled and finally replaced by a different engine, the LMS Jubilee Class 5699 Galatea. So I waited and was rewarded by this wonderful machine. Here’s a few of the day’s photos

     VERY NICE TOO PETER- The latter looks like the APT–Tilting train. This taken near where Peter would have taken his images–was taken some 200yards from the signal box—(guess what with—-my 500 mm mirror lens–sorry—so excited.)

    Thanks Ken. The tilting APT must of influenced my camera. The Heritage centre is a good place for interesting photos.
