We were pleased to host our friend Martin last night attending the transport ticket collectors meeting in Manchester. Martin has many rare and unusual tickets for sale on EBay. Film of his extensive garden railway is widely viewed on Youtube. We had some time to discuss the PMP tour of Asia in March next year which will be my first expedition of 2019. Other trips envisaged or already planned include a final sweep through Ukraine and in the Autumn Indonesia following up the the short stop I made this year and the warm welcome we received when out with the camera. We shall also be updating the Channel Island film and maybe we'll actually get to the Scottish islands which have been on the back burner after the open hostility by Scotland to street photography and a rather cavalier attitude to common law rights perhaps something thje South Yorkshire PTE shares with them.
Today I've completed the latest of our Bus Spot Ultra productions featuring Blackburn (with Darwen), Lancashire with two hours running time it covers over a century of transport in the town and has been adjusted to widescreen and images digitally enhanced to increase the compatibility with the equipment used to view these days, i.e mobile phones and tablets. As with all our recent releases it will also be available at a digital download. I just need to get the cover made. I'm considering another Bus Spot Ultra very soon, probably again covering a North West England destination. I think you had your fill of Blackburn so lets extend around the county who knows perhaps one of the shots will be my inspiration for the next bus spot!
