I have started photographing old buildings so we have some nostalgic reminders in years to come of our industrial past. I suppose even modern buildings will be interesting, they don’t last like they used to. I found this factory interesting and there are other buildings, like the fire station, that are interesting too. This was in Darlaston in the West Midlands, otherwise affectionately known as Darlo!

A lot of shares seem cheap now as we appear to be coming out of a recession. Taylor Wimpey shares have been rising steadily since 2008, but are still a fraction of what they were in 2007. They could return to the highs of over £4.00 a share as the economy recovers. I think there is a housing shortage and they are in a good position to do the building, if the government gets it’s act together.

My first investment blog post was nearly 2 years ago now. I wrote that after buying shares in Premier foods for 4p each. The company was heavily in debt, but the shares went to 18p before a 1 for 10 share swap. They are still at 129.59 at the time of writing. That’s a return of over 220% so far!
