Nantwich town square

My Travel Tuesday blog post this week is traveling back to the market town of Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1980s.

This is part of the town square and some of the buildings surrounding it. Known locally as The Square it’s the center of the oldest part of the town. The town has one of the highest concentrations of listed buildings in England with lots of good examples of Tudor and Georgian architecture.

A fire in December of 1583 destroyed most of the town to the east of the River Weaver which runs through the town.

CFFC: Roofs of Any Kind

Two photos came to mind when I read the prompt for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Roofs of Any Kind.

So here’s the two roof photos taken around 40 years apart.

Raindrops on a car roof photographed in the late 1970s. I know the approximate date because it’s the car my father had when I was in art school.

Black and White Bicycles

When I read the prompt for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Bicycles, Tricycles, Motorcycles and Unicycles I had several ideas for a post.

Having photographed various forms of motorcycle racing in the 1970s and 1980s I had hundreds of black and white photos to pick from. So, of course, I decided to go with monochrome versions of two photos featuring bicycles from last summer.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Countryside and/or Small Towns

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Countryside and/or Small Towns.

When I first moved to southern Ontario 19 years ago I lived in a small town for 8 years before moving to the countryside.

This is a section of High Street, Southampton, Ontario early on a Saturday morning. I lived a few yards off High Street for around 7 years.
