    huwevans Not Really Here

    This thread is for posting of FirstView pictures for the 1st of January, 2009. 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 January, 2009. 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 'POSTING IMAGES' sticky post, which can be found in the Appraisal Gallery).

    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.

    Leaving on a northbound train


    My daughter and her boyfriend leaving for Manchester to spend a couple of days at his fathers house.

    Time 11:37 - precisely the train started pulling out as I struggled to get the camera out of it's case, hence the hasty angled view!

    Happy New Year!!!


    Happy New Year!!!

    Just got in from an exceptionally huge NYE meal over the road at Philpott's Mezzaluna, during which we managed five courses (not including the coffee), one of which appeared to consist of roughly half a deer. Each. As nobody else in the restaurant ordered venison and the chef didn't know what to do with it.

    So here we are back home wishing the New Year in in front of the laptop with our friend in Berlin on Skype. The green guy in the foreground is Walter. He rocks.

    Out for a bike ride, this watertower is in the middle of a forest. I don't know what the water is for.
    Not really happy with the way this one turned out. But at least I got some fresh air and cleared my head after last night's celebrations.

    We are starting the new year with colds, so while I watch another rerun of Deep Space 9 I am sorting some adverts out for ebay. (I am selling and saving up for a 1:1 macro lens)

    The Pachinko, that's sat there since last year, and really does need digging out for that "project" I keep meaning to do.
