    This thread is for posting of FirstView pictures for the 1st of August 2010 . Please read the main About FirstView post, if you have not done so already. You may post only one image here, and it must have been taken on the 1st of August 2010 .

    Please remember to include the basic details - time and place of shooting, and what we're looking at. If you want to put in a short paragraph explaining what's going on, or why you chose that one, or whatever, then please do, but keep it brief and relevant. Any discussion beyond that can go in the 'Comments' thread. Please do not post comments or other replies here - they will be deleted. This thread is for FirstView image posting only.

    The picture thread will remain open for a few days in the first instance, so please try to get your contributions in promptly. People who are perhaps away from home, or need time for film processing, or are otherwise unable to post their images in the initial time slot should pm me - I'll re-open the thread later in the month for late additions. In all cases please remember that the forum image posting rules apply (see the 'HOW TO POST IMAGES - MAX. SIZE plus Free programs' sticky post, which can be found at the top of this board).

    Finally, once again I would like to draw your attention to the FirstView Gallery site - we would like as many contributors as possible to make use of this for hosting their FirstView images in order to maintain as complete an archive as possible for the future. Of course if you prefer not to you are still welcome to contribute to the FirstView threads with images hosted elsewhere.

    We cycled through to Newcastle today and saw this chap eating swords on the quayside. Crowd of spectators made photography difficult. I focused and then held the camera above my head to get a clearer shot, worked out reasonably well. Sometimes you get lucky!

    Tomatoes. :)


    In hindsight, maybe it was a mistake to buy ten plants...
    I think we'll be eating tomatoes for a month whrn that lot matures.

    MickLL In the Stop Bath

    Not a great picture but unusual enough to be remarkable because it was in my front garden.

    Taken yesterday at around noon.

    One Sofa. One Gurk.


    In the preparation of the move to our new home things just seem to be falling into place. Like finding this sofa in a second hand furniture store we've never taken an innerest in, but something drew us in... [​IMG]

    From the Coast

    Late one from me, but it was taken on the 1st Aug 2010 around 8pm


    Mucking about with my new Android phone's camera (HTC Desire) and an app called "RetroCamera" - not as awful as you might expect. Fun and frivolous but as everything is done on the phone this is straight "from camera".
