My camera doesn't like the rain....and I don't like taking it out in the rain.

Sorry to hear about your fall Dianne...hope the stiffness eases soon.

There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing...Never mind, it will be nice tomorrow

Yes Dave, I did think of getting a weather proof coat for my camera....after all, I'm not sugar or salt and I won't melt....but my camera would have to be fettled....I don't like taking it out in the rain.
I'm hoping that Sunday is going to be dry.....there is a bit of a street party down the back of Blackburn Road, and there is a bit of something going on in Mercer Park....would like to get some unposed shots of folk enjoying their day....having a picnic, raising a glass...playing Splat a Rat.(wonder if I should put a plastic bag over the camera)

Re: Today in pictures

Suitably dressed against the weather, waterproof pants, anorak, flat cap, that was just the dog, I ventured out to discover the delights of Lower Barns Street.

1. We started by going through a damp Mercer Park.
2. Heading through the park to the bottom gates.
3. We don't care if its raining, were having a couple of ends.
4. And there we are, heading for the bottom gates.
5. Down Lower Barns Street, with a view of Gt. Harwood.
6. Down the ginnel past the flat iron.
7. Hyndburn Brook again, fast flowing due to rain.
8. Bob says, if you can throw the stick I will get it!
9. Oi, wait for me.
10. Back through Mercer Park again, and home for a cup of Complan.

I know what you mean, they cost too much to damage.

I tried using a plastic bag to take photos through, didnt work, it was a black bin bag

You are....'ow you say - Crackers!
I was prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt, but you have confirmed it.

I tried using my camera in a clear plastic bag....the results left a lot to be desired(OK if you like soft focus)....and my camera kept giving me error messages......and the lens kept popping back into the camera.

Yes, they do cost too much to damage....and I like the camera's I have got...I'm used to them........don't really want to change.
Although...although, our Oz visitors brought with them a Canon EOS 600d........I fondled it lovingly and drooled(not while I was holding the camera - didn't want to damage it) If Santa brought me one of those I wouldn't be too disappointed.

Well, you will have to make a list for santa, with locations to purchase and leave it on the mantelpiece, and dont make his tea untill he reads it.

Tried that, it doesn't work...he is more than capable of cooking his own tea...so he would never starve.
I would have to buy it myself and lie about the price (no hardship in the lying bit)

Re: Today in pictures

Today in pictures, very busy today so only a short walk, but don't worry I took you down town when I went.
1. Off by the canal and down Checkers.
2. Through the Peter Road estate.
3. Up Blackburn Road, the line of trees is the slip road to the motorway.
4. Parked up, and up Union Street, it was not very busy.
5. The Arndale Center was deserted.
6. Had a quick ride on a Gee Gee.
7. The Coppice and Hameldon dominate the town. I was getting a new liberty bodice at Matalan.

Re: Today in pictures

Well, today in pictures, was a sudden rush of blood to my head. I thought lets have a look at Gamblers Caves, What a disappointment that was. I will upload the picturesque stuff later.

1. Its over that hill and far away, we were on the coppice.
2. that hill lies between me, and the hill I have to climb.
3. I just realised , I'm to old for this game!
4. Where did this steep bit come from?
5. Stopping for a moment to get my breath back, I looked back where we had travelled from.
6. This is the Kings Highway.
7. At last my end is in sight, should have worn better trousers.
8. Gamblers Caves has become a hole in the ground.
9. And a tip.
10. Time to turn around and return home.

Re: Today in pictures

Slightly more picturesque Today in Pictures.

1. Looking over the coppice and beyond.
2. He makes this jumping over styles look easy, well he would I have to lift him.
3. Spire Farm, I used to help out here occasionally when it was a working farm. The Hardy's had it then.
4. Why are the steep bits always uphill?
5. There it is Hameldon, but it doesn't feel like a hill.
6. Another bit, that is either up or down.
7. I'm going to lick that, it might be gingerbread.
8. Up a hill looking down.
9. I climb all the way up here, and still find dumped rubbish!
10. Back on the coppice again.
