Not sure about that one Oldboy. 40 shades of grey was rather popular.

Haha, you are so right. Should not drink that early in the day. Black, white and 254 greys in 8 bits is all we needed to know as photographers.

Not sure i`ll get out for a new one but was looking through some old Haworth 1940s stuff as I looked up dates for this years event and found some unedited ones. So an old reworked one of spivs being challenged at Haworth.

Because most authority, it seems to me, is there to restrict freedom of individual action. I always half joke that the first signs that you see when you arrive in the UK from overseas are not welcoming they are prohibitive, don't do this, don't do that, penalty for X is Y etcetera. Depressing enough for a returning citizen, awful for visitors.

Isn`t every country the same? I don`t think it`s exclusively a UK  thing. I`ve got a shot of the entrance to the empty beach in Abu Dhabi that lists more than 20 do nots including do not take photographs. Little wonder the beach was empty at the height of the day.

I'm not as well travelled as you Paul, and I am sure there are worse places, but the UK always strikes me as particularly unwelcoming - surveillance everywhere and everything seems to be a criminal offence these days.

Dartmouth Park War Memorial was the setting for an event to mark the commemoration of the stone laid in honour of Captain Robert Edwin Phillips, who was awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery, under fire, in going with a comrade to the assistance of his commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Henderson, and bringing him back behind the lines. The commemoration took place on 25 January 2017, one hundred years from the date of the actual event during WW1.

The High Sheriff of the West Midlands represented the Queen and the Mayor of Sandwell for the local authority attended.
