     Where is this blue sky—today in sunny Crewe. Whats special with this about “transport”. Well this is Delemere carpark—and the building is Delemere House–where on the sixth floor is the Highway department–who fix the pot holes–or do not as is the case of Crewe.. Note the pristine verticals of the building.These I corrected with a super new Serif tool –with one click sliders for verticals and horizontals and a rotation slider–very good very easy.

    From an interview with Garry Winogrand:

    Q: Are you conscious of… an off-kilter thing happening [in your photographs]?

    Winogrand: Oh, yeah, sure. I pretty much know what I’m doing.

    Q: Is that an attempt to solve a photographic problem?

    Winogrand: Generally it’s to make one. Another reason can be just because physically I might have trouble to get what I want to include in [the frame], you know, just physically. And that’s a good reason.

    Ken >>> Only if it was taken between 1/6/2015 and 30/6/2015! (Peter’s a stickler for the rules – much stricter than I was! 😉  )

    I’ve been away for a while so am playing catch up. It’s great to see so many different forms of transport displayed in various ways. There’s too many here to comment on them all. It’s good to see Les’ image of the traction engine and motor bikes. Being a black and white photo helps give it a good atmosphere. I liked John’s photo of the bike through the window with the girl on the phone. I find Ken’s photos with his new lens sharp and clear. They demostrate the history of public transport well. Wallace photo of the folk on the electric scooters is quite unusual while Ian has posted various photos of transport in use. Time for me to get my stakes on.

    Welcome back Peter! Hope you enjoyed your trip.

    Looking through all these again I was struck by Ian’s narrow boat picture, something I hadn’t realised before; the clouds and tree foliage form an oval shape. I think this adds to the appeal of this picture. Why didn’t I notice this before? I think it may be that this picture has been the subject of a discussion about sharpening between he and I and I had simply been looking only at detail.

    While I was on leave in sunny Croatia I took a few photos of different forms of transport. While some were just record shots others were a bit more interesting.
    As I’m making up the rules I’ll say this qualifies as transport!

    4 goodies there, Peter. I like the subtlety of the shadow on the surf especially.

    Yes, I agree with John’s comment – that first one stands out as particularly interesting.

    Refreshing change Peter and really love the tree lined avenue.All very nice indeed. Had two months there at the height of the troubles for voluntary groups. Took my M.G. Maestro -white and red top–pristine. 0–to sound barrier in 7 secs. Went between the lines and having big red crosses on meant nothing. Always went at full throttle –twin carb and 2,000 cc did it shift–when I came home got £200 scrap for the alloy wheels –totally beaten up.Did my knee out there. In 1955 Baron mentions in his biography about the Serb/Croation problem. Tito held it together until he died—must be ok now–you got home safe Peter. All nice photos Peter.

    Thanks for your comments folks. I agree that the first one is a bit unusual because it’s so different. Yes Ken Croatia has a long and complex history. I was trying to study it all, but it was so mixed up I found it difficult to remember it all. There’s been a lot a hardship there, but they’re recovering well.

    Very complex history Peter and right back to the Ottoman Empire and so complex as you rightly say–only historians could get a handle on it. Lovely for you to get there and share you pics with us. My friend from Altrincham and Hale P.S. take “art” groups out there.Bet you have some more photo”s you could let us see???

    That’s a fine photo Wallace and I’ve just checked that it does qualify as transport includes the movement of animals as well as people.  It’s well framed and I like the subtle lighting.
