Hello - I'm back from my holiday in the Lake District. It was very 'sunshine and showers', a bit ironic considering there's been no rain at all for the past six weeks. I took loads of photos (of course!) and will post some on here as soon as I have sorted them out. Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments over the past week - I've just finished reading them all and really enjoyed them. There seems to have been a fault with Blogger's auto-posting - my last Thursday's post appeared and then disappeared, but I have now posted it again. It lost its comments though.... sorry if you wrote one and it has gone.
Hope to catch up on your blogs, over the next few days. In the meantime, I've one or two Saltaire shots that I prepared earlier.
This is one of my favourite photos of one of my favourite bits of Saltaire - the ornamental 'twin towers' on the long south frontage of Salts Mill. At least, I think they are merely ornamental. They might, I suppose, have been chimneys at one time. You can see clearly the elborate Italianate stonework, astonishing in its detail considering the Mill was (still is) a functional industrial building. Set against a leaden grey sky, the honey-coloured stone really glows. I posted a wider-angle black and white shot of the Mill frontage earlier this year - see here.
