The organ pictures are great, however I love your sepia toned images at bottom, I love black and white photography, however for some pictures I think the sepia tones work better, loving this and knowing how to achieve it are two different things LOL. Another thing to put on the list to learn, wonderful pictures Helen! 🙂

    I sometimes use sepia when nothing else works!

Super shots Helen, I love the pov you shose for the organ pipes. I bet they are a delight to hear. It’s so long since I have been to Preston Marina, I think we will include a visit very soon, motivated by your great pictures 🙂

I adore old pipe organs. 😀

    Yes I do too. They are the norm in this part of the world. Parts of this church date back to 12th century . Have a good weekend.

Magnificent! And I’ve got to mention…I love the names of towns in England. I’m not even sure how to describe the way they sound to an American. Wicked cool seems so trite 😉

    Yes, I’m Scottish and since moving down here (England) find local village names just so quintessentially English. Our village is called Clifton (normal), neighbouring village is Newton-with-Scales ( charming) thanks for stopping by.
    Have a good weekend

      Newton-with-Scales! How did they come up with such creative and charming names? And, by the by, my husband’s name is Clifton. Clif for short 😉

        HMB · 21 April 2017 at 18:28

        I will investigate and post about it sometime.
        Clifton is a popular name locally, as a surname though. Historically the most IMPORTANT family around here were Cliftons . There’s loads of stuff named after them.
