Milestones – Revisited

Milestones – Revisited

A few years ago now, hmm, actually, about 5 years ago, I went to a place in Basingstoke called Milestones. It was a nice day out at a very interesting place.
Anyway, as I had some time off this week and the weather hasn’t been brilliant, I thought it would be good to have a nice family trip there.
This place is very interesting, it like a town from bygone times, all recreated inside a big hanger. There are buildings, shops vehicles and period dressed people from the late 1800s to 1960s. Its a great place.
Ashleigh, enjoyed walking all round the roads and look in all the shops. She loved the Teddy Bear shop!

There are lots of photo opportunities and it is great to see things from the 40’s and 50’s as we are currently building 2 websites from those periods. (homefronthistory.co.uk & theflyingducks.co.uk) the latter is not live at time of posting.

I couldnt make up my mine which photo  to post, so I’ve put both!

Look into my Eyes…

I’ve been going through old photos again!

A while back I saw an image taken at Sedlec Ossaury (The Church of Bones) in the Czech Republic that was processed in black and white and I thought it really suited the topic.

So, I thought I’d try a similar process on one of my photos.

Here is the result!

Seeing the Potential

Seeing the Potential

When I took this photo, I saw the potential in it.  The problem was, the image out of the camera just didn’t do it justice.


So after straightening it, turning the jpegs into tiffs and putting them in photomatix,  I then made it black and white and this was the result.  The potential I saw was revealed!
