November's Pictures

Vapour Trail
Vapour Trail (Pentax Optio 50)

This is sort of looking a little like a set with the previous one, except for the fact that this picture was taken at sunset when it was not overcast and the contrast has not been messed with, in fact the only thing that has been done is the the picture has been compressed and scaled for the page as usual because browsers seem very bad a scaling pictures. It is very near where the previous picture was taken however which is the only similarity with the previous. Of course being boring I did have to have a quick look to see what I didn't know about vapour trails and found that there there is a phenomenon called distrails caused by aircraft cutting through cloud and in fact the opposite of vapour trails. Every day is a school day.

Paint the Whole World with a Rainbow
Paint the Whole World with a Rainbow (Pentax Optio 50)

On a short trip to the park this time not as foggy as the last time and this time I had a full compliment of family with me not just me out testing my camera. In fact we were out trying to look for flowers for my daughter's homework. My wife pointed out the rainbow which initially I didn't believe because it hadn't rained (not that it needs to), then on further inspection there it was.

This picture is a little messed with. The contrast has just been upped which has darkened the trees to a silhouette and brought out the colours in the overcast sky.

East Lancs Railway
East Lancs Railway (Pentax Optio 50)

On a failed trip in in many so many ways we ended up at East Lancs Railway. It started up less than promising in that the first museum we tried to get to was closed but before that we circled the museum several times after misreading GPS... several times. On finding the museum was closed we followed tourist signs to the railway. Again there was little promise in this trip owing to the fact that I didn't think that a trip was on the cards and no-one were train spotters, however it didn't turn out too bad. Mind you all the best photo ops happened when my camera was in my pocket so all I came home with was this.

The train on the right was a lunch train. All set up for melon or egg mayonnaise making me wish that I could join them just like when my Wife and I were on the Orient Express. After looking at the timetable for these things I found out they did Dinners which sound like something I might be into, but the rush to get to Bury for 7pm might cause a problem from Manchester.

The station did look pretty with it's decorations for the Santa Special which might be an idea for anyone with kids who like Santa or Steam Trains which more or less encompasses most kids I would suspect.

If the Hat Fits
If the Hat Fits (Pentax Optio 50)

On a trip to Crown Point North I saw this triangular thing that I had never noticed before on the side of Jessops, so my daughter an I took a closer look and found this facade. The plaque says “This pediment was one of three which adorned the front facade of nearby Wilson's Hat Factory in Wilton Street. Built 1872. Demolished 2002.”. It was of course demolished to make way for the Crown Point North shopping centre. Not needing to visit the area around the hat factory at the time I never saw it before it got demolished which is a pity, even the pictures on the Crown Point North history section don't seem to help much.
