Hoss Muck #review

HERITAGE (4)

This photo of a wood pile  one of the more usual photographs I’ve taken here in the Black Country. I saw in local news that one place I have taken photos is now become a dumping group and someone has dumped what we in the Black Country call a load of ‘hoss muck’.

Creating a Black Country image #photography

I’ve been using pictures of daffodils lately, to signify spring in my recent articles. I’m not sure where the quote ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ comes from. Some say it comes from a Chinese proverb. It does sound Chinese… (more…)

1 The Midland Metro - The Sunday Ramble

If you are a regular Sunday ramble reader, you’ll know I like to go out and take photographs on a Sunday afternoon.  It seems people are copying my Sunday ramble idea.

The Winter Solstice

It’s the winter solstice today when it will get dark quite early, it’s the shortest day. The actual time of the solstice is around 10pm this evening and so I think that means this is the last day of autumn and winter starts tomorrow. According to the BBC the nights will start getting lighter, but not the mornings, not until in the new year. (more…)

Merry Christmas

The review: the modern world

Sunday 19th October 2014 around the Black Country (74)

I’ve been checking the weather forecast it seems this could be a good weekend for photography. At the time of writing, Saturday morning, the light is really good.
