Durham/Seaham 2016

Howdy folks,

So the Edinburgh story and slideshow post isn’t quite ready yet, mainly because Vanna took over 400 pictures and I’m still trying to figure out which ones to use. In the meantime, I’m going to test out the Photobucket slideshow option with the pictures she took from Durham and Seaham this Christmas. There isn’t much I need to say for commentary, but I will apologize in advance for my creepy smile. That’s why I keep  my mouth closed for pictures, people.

Right…hopefully this works. If it goes well I’ll use Photobucket for the Edinburgh pictures too.




EDIT: It appears I can’t get the slideshow to embed in the blog post by the Photobucket link and I’m too lazy to mess around in the settings to find a way.  I’ll work on it more for the Edinburgh slideshow, but for this? Please hit the link above. It’s worth it for the little bird.


One Last Trip To Seaham…

The first photography post on the new photography blog. Enjoy!

More Photography On The Citadel

I’ve been to Seaham a few times in the last year or so; once with the family then again with Vanna (my fiancée, and reason for my impending permanent move to America) at Christmas. It is a great place, and I was happy to go again (especially as the weather was so nice).

Because I took so many pictures on my previous visits, this album was a little trickier to create. Though things can change between visits (like Gooseberry Falls in Minnesota), I don’t like to repeat my earlier work (ha, making it sound professional when really it is just me with a point-and-shoot camera). Thankfully we went to a couple of different areas in Seaham, so I was able to get a fresh perspective on the place for this slideshow. All in all, I’m pleased with my pictures, and I hope you enjoy them too.

Oooh! The first…

Seaham Pictures

After viewing the house and getting my hair cut (momentous occasion that) we decided to visit Seaham, which as you can probably deduce from the name, is by the coast. An old mining area, the local authorities have spent millions trying to clean up the beaches of Seaham in recent years. Sue happened to bring her camera along so I took the opportunity to take pictures for the blog. The wind and sun did their best to make my task harder but I feel I’ve got some decent shots from it. Enjoy!

P.S I’m running out of storage space on wordpress. I imagine that deleting older pictures will mean they will disappear from my posts. Am I right in this assumption? If so I’ll have to think carefully about what to do next. I appreciate any suggestions!
