Chelford Steam fair 2014 weather was wonderful for a proper Steam Engine show (photographers dream) complete with a range of steam powered agricultural equipment, log splitters and steam powered machine of every kind including steam powered fair ground rides.

The fair is the perfect chance to photograph some of the stunning vehicles lovingly preserved.

I love how the fair is now a long established family affair with all generations joining in the fun, long may it continue.


The Wigan Bandstand


Mesnes Park in the heritage district of Wigan is a beautiful public garden close to the town centre.

It was a sunny day in April so I thought that I would dig out my converted digital camera (Nikon D70) from last year and give it a go. This photograph is of the historic bandstand, I tried to include the wee cyclist in the gap to add a bit of interest.


Stockport Bus Station


Taken from the main A6 in Stockport your get a commanding view of some interesting parts of Stockport, here the bus station.

I had been waiting for an “excuse” to see paintings by Helen Clapcott, I spotted this ladies paintings and I was totally spellbound….but sadly the exhibition had finished by the time I had shifted myself over to South Manchester.

Here is a link to a few of Helen’s paintings ….I was so impressed on her painting of the Stockport Arches….
