Christmas Day in the Black Country

This Christmas Day post will be syndicated to my local readers later and a link will go on Twitter for all my followers on there; Facebook will also get a instant link.

Wednesbury at Christmas

1 Wednesbury at Christmas

I found out this morning that some of my photos are on the website of the local newspaper.  I was asked if I was from the Express and Star when I was taking them. Newspapers are fighting for survival and have to adjust to the new era of digital communication. Advertising is changing too with Google dominating. (more…)
