Local Area - The Year So Far
w/e 18 February 2018
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

A review of the year thus far wasn't something I'd planned but the dreaded winter sickness bug has laid me and the wife low since Thursday and I have been unable to take advantage of the fine weather at the end of the week. So as I only had a few shots from the beginning of the week, that forced my hand so here are a few more shots from places we have been to during January and February.

Walled Garden

Market Place

This dark and dismal view of Ilkeston's Market Place was taken shortly before midday on Sunday January 21st but the snow was soon gone.
Wollaton Hall

Stable Block

The Stable Block at Wollaton - and I wasn't the only one taking photos.
Waterlogged Field

Ha-Ha Wall

Green's Lock

This is one I did take on Monday of this week (as a possible jigsaw picture) at Green's Lock on a short walk along the Erewash Canal.

And this is another from this week on a bitterly cold, wet and windy Ash Wednesday morning on the Market Place where the BBC were recording the Ashes-To-Go event for broadcast in their news programmes later in the day. To mark the start of Lent passers-by were offered a prayer and ashing by clergy and lay from local churches and although we did have our five seconds of fame on the TV we now think getting frozen through might have had something to do with our subsequent malady which meant we also missed last night's Chinese New Year event on the Market Place. Ah well, there's always another year.
