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 2015July 4, 2015 at 11:03 pm #10075
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!July 5, 2015 at 11:09 am #10085
As I said about this photograph on Flickr: very inviting! And beautiful light.July 10, 2015 at 8:36 pm #10109
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.)July 19, 2015 at 12:38 pm #10175

Do you know where this is???(Give you a clue—Taken from entrance of Crewe Heritage Centre—way across Mill St. The top of Rail House–whats that –about quarter of a mile or so)???July 19, 2015 at 2:07 pm #10176
Welcome to the Canon Club KenJuly 19, 2015 at 3:33 pm #10177
THANKS Wallace-a proper camera. Think this digital business could catch on.July 19, 2015 at 7:45 pm #10180
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.July 19, 2015 at 8:09 pm #10181
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 photosJuly 19, 2015 at 9:10 pm #10182
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.)July 20, 2015 at 7:52 pm #10184
Thanks Ken. The tilting APT must of influenced my camera. The Heritage centre is a good place for interesting photos.July 20, 2015 at 8:04 pm #10185
