It dates back to the 13th Century and was once the home of Fox Talbot the photographic pioneer. It houses probably the oldest photograph negative which dates back to 1835. The camera equipment in the museum ranges from the very early plate glass cameras through to today's equipment.
And some Harry Potter scenes were filmed here!!
These were taken on my phone, but have a look at Suza's blog to see some really good mobile phone pictures.
We parked up at Horsley Campsite for a few days to visit the RHS [Royal Horticultural Society] at Wisley as they had the September flower show on. Horsley is only about 5 miles from Wisley and the RHS had laid on free buses from Horsley station, well they charge enough at the entrance to make up for it.
A long time since posting and what with the summer and things happening the Blog muse has deserted me. All credit to those who keep posting no matter what.
I had a new mobile and all my Google photos sync'd and took up loads of space so I deleted them and consequently have lost the photos from some of my old posts. So in future I will store all my photos on the PC and not with Google I haven't actually lost any as they were backed up elsewhere, just those that were sync'd with Google and on the blog.
Synchronising a/cs is handy ....but not for everything !!
Always a favourite ride, and as it was sunny I took my old bike, which is about 35 years old, for a spin. Its a lovely ride as its so light, but its not up to the cycling I do now.
See the route on the LHS
1980 Raleigh Competition.
I've changed the gearing all round to make it more rideable for me. Its a 34 /13 on the rear and a 48/34 chainset. I've kept all the original stuff, just in case I decide to sell it.
Parks are now leaving verges uncut and this was lovely with the cornflowers out.
This used to be a pitch and putt area but now a meadow.
The old Custom House along with the new developments. Apparently cardiff Bay is one of the largest waterside areas in Europe.
