    That little black sliver is annoying me now.

    Just been on your Flickr or insta account and saw number 3 is the ‘Christian duplicating service’ and was wondering if I can send our vicar to be duplicated? He is so busy at the moment I am sure he could do with an extra pair of hands. :rolleyes: Don

    #123 was a complete pain in the proverbial.

    Took ages to find one, and then found three in quick succession, the first one was in Cleethorpes of all places, after having scoured Nottingham for one in my usual haunts. Then today, before posting the Cleethorpes one, I found two of them hiding in Nottingham (and one of them I like better so I used that one).

    #124 was always going to be cast iron.

    Check your cast-iron pics - you may also have a 125 - in the form of 'B125', a test level mark.

    You might even get both numbers in one shot of a ductile cast iron manhole cover.

    Worth refreshing the 'rules' of this project.

    - the numbers have to be shot in sequence (i.e. can't go shooting #23 before #18 even if the #23 is an excellent example).

    So previously shot out of sequence #125's don't count

    - can't shoot the same number source twice in a row (no walking up a road, shooting door numbers one after another).

    So using #124 and #125 from the same source (i.e. utility / manhole covers) isn't allowed either.

    - as many different sources as possible.

    Generally try to find diverse sources, although I've pretty much shot every public source of a number now.

    Shooting numbers is easy, compiling them afterwards in sequence is easy, the only reason this project is hard, challenging and in some cases, worthwhile to me is that I have to shoot the numbers in sequence.

    i.e. every number in this project is shot after the number that precedes it, sometimes by minutes, sometimes weeks and in the odd case, months.

    In that case, keep your eye out for learner motorcycles - they are usually 125cc and often have 125 written on them somewhere...

    Well you can't use #123 again when you get to 8368:p
