October's Pictures

Astley Green Colliery
Astley Green Colliery (Pentax Optio 50)

Today was a drive out to Wigan and Astley Green's Colliery. It's a strangely informal place similarly reminiscence of the Railway Age Museum, there's the small museum that explains about coal and mining and a brief history of Astley Green, the pit head pictured here and the machine room which is the most impressive part of the museum. Of course this begs the question as to why I don't have a picture of the engine room and that's simple, this was just a better picture. I also doubt that any picture can do the engine room justice. As big and as impressive as a church (there's a picture part of it on the homepage of Astley Green's Colliery) the engine room contains one gargantuan engine that I suspect would be a sight to see when they finally get it going.

Inside Amalfi Cathederal
Inside Amalfi Cathederal (TYTN II)

Blimey have I been busy. So busy that I you're unfortunately going to have to put up with another old picture.

I think it's amazing that whilst you're in this Cathedral you have a small courtyard with walkways around that contains such a beautiful view... well I think so. It's seems to be a similar scene in taly and Spain with tower and a beautiful courtyard. It does make you forget the scary steps up and the scary steps that you will have to descend on your way out that you can see on this picture.

Great Balls of Paper
Great Balls of Paper (TYTN II)

What do you expect to see on the outside of an ancient Greek city in Italy? Yes that's right, a great big papier mache ball chained to a post. As if finding is the biggest and most pointless papier mache ball outside Paestum's side gets, imagine my surprise to find papiermache.co.uk a whole site dedicated to everything that is papier mache. I suppose natural questions are who made it? Why is it there? Is it around all the time? When was it created? And who created it?s Of course those questions could be asked of the ball in Paestum too.
