Shadowy figures in Haverbreaks, Lancaster

Shadowy self portrait, originally uploaded by Lancaster Today.

Another self-portrait. This time my sidekick is a little easier to recognise.

"Papa, will you please stop taking photos?! We came out to ride our bikes!"

(I lie. It looks like that, but he was posing for this as much as I was).

More Nygel Harrot

Nygel acts, originally uploaded by Lancaster Today.

In yesterday's post, Your EG Tour Guide said the two photos "reveal a bit of Nygel's personality." Perhaps so, but today's may reveal even more! I hope you enjoy them, and I know Nygel does too.

You might be interested to know that Nygel also produces stereographs. He presented me with a set yesterday - some wonderful local 3D images. If only there was a way of letting you see them...

Meet Nygel, comedy writer, comedian and much else besides. We took loads of shots today, so I'll add a few more in tomorrow's post after I get a chance to sort through them.

Old grocers, Russell Street

Interesting double door, the bottom one to a cellar I presume. My guess is that something may have been poured down here at one stage - any ideas what...?

Kids again

Sometimes it good to photograph those you know best. Meet Yasmin again. And below, Caolan, her brother and Munchkin No. 2.

Ashton Memorial, Williamson Park

Woke up early but the light was bad and the sky grey and overcast. Undeterred, I plodded up to Williamson Park to take a few shots of the Aston Memorial, Lancaster's 'famous folly'. Fortunately, the park warden was kind enough to invite me inside to take more.

It was an unexpected pleasure to have the place all to myself - I only wish the natural light had been better or I had brought a flash with me. But perhaps I'll return another Sunday at the same time, now that I've befriended the man with the key!

Lying on my back on the marble floor, but perhaps worth the chill?
