Well my cold is on the wane which is good. The weather here was glorious again today so rather than sitting in and festering in my own germs I managed to get out for some fresh air. I feel a lot better for that....back to work tomorrow! Managed to track down a little one man operation today in Bath who is doing developing of film and hand printing from negative which is great news. Don't get me wrong I love the convenience of digital printing but it is good to know that there is someone locally I can go to for a good hand print on sexy fibre paper. Now not sure if I have ever mentioned this before....but.....many years ago I used to do printing on the floor of the bedroom with trays and stuff...you get the picture right? Then I had the brainwave that I could have a loft conversion done in the house and have a darkroom up there with running water etc....you know the real works. And so it came to pass about 10 years ago, got it all kitted out with enlarger and all associated equipment. Now be kind to me as I am ill but I have never used it....that's all I will say on the matter.

OK today's photo is another from my series taken at the Victorian cemetery that adjoins Beckford's Tower. Completed in 1827 from a design by Henry Edmund Goodridge for William Beckford (1760-1844). For all the information on the tower just follow the link back there. If you are interested in it's location then here is a link to a map.
