Signs of Spring
by Tom our Fishing Guy

Well Headbangers - its a quick turn-around for me on this Challenge - Fore when you play, I'll be in Ireland, so Im posting this B4 hand.

So, Tom thinks its about time Spring reared its Beautiful head, and what better to show all you lucky folk - how spring has bloomed in the UK

My Header
A  Macro shot of a (sticky bud) beginning to bloom - showing us all that Spring has arrived.

More of Macs Macro



Couple of weeks ago it was a warm n sunny day - so off I went - with my camera's for a stroll along the river - to see what there was to photograph, apart from my Macro shots - this is what I found






And- this is our beautiful River on this warm Spring day 


Well folks we'll be in Ireland when you vote, so I'm sorry but can't comment or vote on this weeks challenge
So GOOD LUCK to you all MDFs

You must now know where to go to find these good Friends to see how spring has treated my friends across the Big Pond - but if not sure

Old Photos by Lew

My Music spot is from the past also
All about photos


A trip up into the loft and a long search for a few "OLD" Photos + a few newish too.

Starting with my Mum as my 
Header
I took this before entering my Teenager Years - just at the  beginning of my Passion of Photography. (I'm pleased I have leaned a little).

Now lets go further back in time shall we?
"Yes" it is I and my Mum, going back some 63ish yrs ago.
Photographer, My Dad I think.

Coming forward many years we have
My Mum, Taken by my Stepfather (I Think)
Before she got Alzhimer's. 


Photographer unknown.
This young Lady is my MIL Jessie.
At a very early stage - as a young girl Jessie was in a Dancing group and performed and travelled around the Country on stage, one show that I know of was The White Horse Inn.

Jessie later on was into Ballroom Dancing - Here she is Posing for the camera's after winner the News of the World(newspaper) Championships.
Photographer unknown

Later years - Jessie was into Cruising, and here she is with her friends who all are in a Dancing club that go Cruising together.
Photographer Unknown

Here's Jessie (with Julie) (Taken by me)
This is before Jessie took bad on a Cruise with a stroke
and after a lot of problems found out she had Vascular Dementia and is now in a residnetial Home near us.

Going back a few years also 
Photographer Unknown

This young Lady is my beloved Julie, coming home from school.

The next shot was taken by me 
Here's Julie and our friend Gill we all had been to a show and met the stars after and I took their photo
The Pop Group called 
The Searchers.

Well folks thats all I'm gonna show you this week
