Of the ten images I submitted, three are on show at the Barnstaple Museum, along with a wide collection of work from various other photographers. The three […]

Bideford Bike Show

Now, for those that know me, I am not exactly what you may describe as a ‘petrol head’ or part of the biking community. However, when I heard about the first Bike Show to be held in Bideford I was actually quite excited about the prospect. I had become a little despondent with all the […]

A Day of Diversity – Part 2

Yesterday we finished in the backstreets of Ilfracombe with a focus on dereliction, which was a challenge I set myself as a sub-category of the ‘Street’ theme. Today we head back down to the seafront and on our way along you pass the many fabulous buildings which are a part of Ilfracombe’s heritage. I knew […]
