Town meets country
Still posting random shots..... I've just returned from a holiday and enjoyed my 60th birthday celebration. (And, hooray! My daughter did manage to get us some tickets for the Olympics - basketball!)
I have now taken delivery of a new Mac (I decided an upgrade was going to be more cost-effective than a repair) but it will take me a while to get it up and running with photo software - and, no doubt, even longer until I've updated my skills and knowledge to cope with it. I'm still able to post on my blog using my old computer, even though it is struggling a bit, so I should be able to keep things going until I get properly organised.
This photo shows a favourite spot of mine, up near Hirst Lock, where a footbridge crosses the River Aire and you can see the tower of Saltaire's New Mill in the distance. It is a peaceful spot and feels like it might be right out in the countryside, but actually the bridge crosses to a housing estate and is quite a busy thoroughfare. I had to wait ages until there was no-one walking or cycling over the bridge. It bounces quite noticeably as people cross and that doesn't make for a sharp photo!
