The heather on the golf course at Seascale is just starting to show its colours as 37401 'Mary Queen of Scots' speeds by on the rear of the 14.35 Carlisle - Barrow-in-Furness on Mon 24th July 2017.

he Frontenac County Court House in Kingston, Ontario, Canada is the Courthouse for Frontenac County, Ontario. The Neoclassical building was designed by Edward Horsey and constructed by builders Scobell and Tossell.[1] Alternation after 1874 fire by John Power added the dome tower. It overlooks City Park to its south, and Lake Ontario beyond. The front of the structure features the Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom.

 

The building was constructed between 1855 and 1858 as a judicial and administrative complex with a jail in the rear. In 1980 it was designated a National Historic Site of Canada

This photo is taken from Astoria Park by the East River. The bridge on the front is Hell Gate Bridge and the rear one is Triborough Bridge. And the highly illuminated cityscape on the background is, of course, Manhattan.

 

Awesome On Black

 

I had couple hours of free time this evening and the weather was so darn good. Zero cloud, nada! So, I grabbed my camera bag and a tripod and hopped on the subway train to Astoria. It was about 30 degree Fahrenheit outside with moderate wind. Not too bad. So, I wore what I usually wear for this kind of weather - sweater, double jacket, jeans and sneaker. Normally, that’d be just enough. Not today!

 

I forgot to think about the river. It’s usually much colder and windier when you’re by one. Let alone the fact that I was there for almost an hour. I had no gloves, no beanie, no scarf, no board pants (I hate long john). It was fine the first 5-10 minutes… then hell began. My face and hands turned solid within twenty minutes, and I didn’t feel a thing after that. Well, consider what I got out of the evening, it’s still worth it. But next time around, I’d definitely bundle the hell up before I go out doing photography work.

 

Moral of the story: Never underestimate the weather… EVER!!!

In the background is the Eads Bridge, with Metrolink light rail on the lower deck (no over-under this time). Behind the Eads is the MLK road bridge.

 

This is the first time I've seen this unit away from its normal parking spot tucked up alongside the plant, located next to the Casino Queen. 9335 was built as Pennsy 7916, later became Conrail 9335, then ADM, and now Cargill. Although you can't tell it from this view, the large Cargill logo on the engineer's-side long hood has been painted over.

I found this on a fence at the rear of Queens Gardens in Perth. My lovely contact hold on knew the name of this plant :)

The first visit to Scotland for the Colas 67's was on the 27th March 2017. They worked a Heaton - Newcastle via Glasgow Queen Street test train.

I didn't manage to see the northbound working but I caught them returning to Newcastle. Here in beautiful afternoon sunshine, 67027 approaches Musselburgh with 1Q24 at 1521, with 67023 on the rear.

Tell me the legends of long ago

When the kings and queens would dance in the realm of the red rose

Play me the melodies i want to know

So i can teach my children, oh

 

Pray tell me the story of young co chulainn

How his eyes were dark his expression sullen

And how he'd fight and always won

And how they cried when he was fallen

 

Oh tell me the story of the queen of this land

And how her sons died at her own hand

And how fools obey commands

Oh tell me the legends of long ago

 

Where the mountains of mourne come down to the sea

Will she no come back to me

Will she no come back to me

 

Oh shenandoah i hear you calling

Far away you rolling river

Roll down the mountain side

On down on down go lassie go

 

Oh tell me the legends of long ago

When the kings and queens would dance in the realms of the red rose

Play me the melodies so i might know

So i can tell my children, oh

 

My roisin dubh is my one and only true love

It was a joy that joyce brought to me

While william butler waits

And oscar, he's going wilde

 

Ah sure, brendan where have you behan?

Looking for a girl with green eyes

My dark rosaleen is my only colleen

That georgie knows best

 

But van is the man

Starvation once again

Drinking whiskey in the jar-o

Synge's playboy of the western world

 

As shaw, sean i was born and reared there

Where the mountains of mourne come down to the sea

Is such a long, long way from tipperary

Well known as ‘snake with a hood’. A venomous snake that, when excited, rears up and spreads the skin behind its head to form a hood.

Story:

Dalmanutha loomed in the near distance as Erathor and his army approached. He had visited the city twice before, but never had it looked ominous, always regal and joyous. Ominous, however, was the best word to describe it now. The false Queen’s ugly Dragon sigil flew high above each tower, and the very sight was enough to anger the Loreesi lord.

“Remind me, Dag; why did you advise me to launch our attack against this particular section of wall?” Erathor asked, removing his helmet for a moment to wipe away the sweat on his brow. The bannerman on his left pointed ahead of the advancing army.

“That dune will give us sufficient cover to prepare for the attack. They will not be able to see us whilst we hide there and so they cannot harm us. They will know we’re there, in fact they've almost certainly seen us, but we’ll be out of range of their arrows and it would be folly for them to leave the city to meet us on open ground.”

 

The dune did indeed provide adequate cover. Large trees and planks of wood, dragged by horses at the rear of the force, were built into a sturdy wall consisting of different sections, as well as multiple ladders. Erathor was quietly confident, feeling that his plan would be unlikely to fail, but at the same time he knew that he could potentially lose many of his loyal soldiers.

“Erathor, we should move out.” Allaeus placed a hand on his friend’s armoured shoulder. Another knight stood next to him.

“My lord, let me be the first up your ladder. It would be an honour,” the knight said. Erathor smiled gratefully.

“If that is your wish, let it be so. You know the dangers.” Allaeus spoke again.

“It’s time. Send out the archers.”

“Archers, forward!” Erathor cried, and the men swiftly climbed the dune, notching arrows as they went. When they reached the top, they fired a volley that forced the opposing men, waiting on top of the wall, to hide themselves. At this point, the rest of the Loreesi were up on their feet and holding the sections of wall in groups.

“Forward!” Erathor himself ran up the dune, fighting against the loose sand that fell away as he went. The archers fired a second volley, keeping the enemy down, and the rest of the army pushed the wood they carried into the ground, forming a long, protective wall. It only took a minute or two for the wall to be secure, with just a few arrows actually being fired from the city. The archers continued to stand, waiting for any sign of movement.

“This is it, men! This Glorious city, capital or our Glorious land, cannot have those banners flown above it for any longer! If any man takes one down, he shall be forever honoured!” The men cheered at Erathor’s words. “Now, let us move forward, without fear, and take back what is rightfully ours. ONWARDS TO VICTORY!” Picking up the ladders, the army poured out of the few gaps in the wooden wall, pushing the ladders against the stone. At this point the Dragons rose up, not heeding the arrows, and attempted to force the attackers back. Some fell in the charge, as the defenders' arrows rained down upon them. The knight Erathor had spoken to reached the top of the wall and, rather surprisingly, wasn’t killed instantly. Allaeus, just ahead of the lord, speared a man at the top, and Erathor himself cut down a soldier as soon as he left the ladder behind. The fighting quickly became fiercer, with the Loreesi archers pinpointing Dragons to take down.

“Allaeus!” Erathor called to his friend as soon as they were left relatively alone. “Take as many men as you think you need and move onto the higher wall, across the courtyards. Good luck, old friend.” Allaeus nodded and clasped Erathor’s hand.

“You too.” He ran off towards the southern part of the city, red plume flying, spear tip flashing, yelling the battle cry of Loreos.

  

I’m so tired of this build after taking over a hundred photos, and not getting a decent one! I apologise for the poor quality of the photo, but I couldn’t get any better. I hope you like the build, and the story also. If you're wondering why there's gold in the walls, it's because it shows how big an important the city is, especially since this part of it is quite near the palace.

Edit: I can't believe I forgot this, but many thanks to Brickninja for all the advice he game me for this MOC. I owe you one, man!

Thanks for viewing, and have a great day!

 

For the Glory of Loreos!

Looking out from the remains of Kendal Castle, in Kendal, Cumbria

 

The castle was probably built in the late 12th century as the home of the Lancaster family who were Barons of Kendal. The best-known family associated with the castle was the Parr family; including Queen Catherine Parr, the sixth wife of King Henry VIII of England. Her family had lived at Kendal since her ancestor Sir William Parr married the heiress of Kendal, Elizabeth Ros, during the reign of Edward III of England. By the time Catherine Parr was born, the family had long deserted the castle which was already falling into disrepair. Catherine's father preferred to live in the centre of court in London. Sir Thomas's father seems to be the last of the Parrs to have lived at Kendal Castle.

 

The building has been a ruin since Tudor times but imposing stonework remains are still present. The two remaining significant ruins of Kendal Castle. In the foreground is part of the walls of the old manor hall, while the only surviving tower of the castle is visible rear left. The site is freely accessible to the public. It is managed by the South Lakeland District Council.

My driver Jellae (I just love being able to say that: ‘my driver’ - “I’ll have MY DRIVER come ‘round and pick you up. Is nine o’clock good? We’ll go to the club from there. Tee time is 9:30 sharp”) anyway my driver was now finally convinced that I had lost it.

 

After watching me climb up to the top of the first pylon (wall) at The Ramesseum the previous day, lay in the dirt with my camera, and wander off unattended on numerous occasions into the bowels of these temples, now this crazy American was asking to be driven over to Hatshepsut’s temple at 4 in the morning “to go mountain climbing”!?

 

“Mister Cam-a-doon are you sure you want to do this?” he asked prodding, somewhat concerned for my safety but also wondering just what the hell I was going to do up on a mountain, alone, in the dark. “I’m fine Jellae, this is why I came to Egypt in the first place.”

 

He wasn’t a color junkie; I couldn’t explain this to him.

 

I was focused, prepared and in shape, after all this was ‘only’ a 600 foot vertical relief hike, it’d be ‘like baggin’ wamp rats in my T-16 back home’! I had my kit in order and I knew what I was doing. I had a good feeling about this. And besides, I was out the door and gone long before the

Morning Call to Prayer

too.

 

So off we went in the dark, across the bridge with its machine gun turrets over to the west bank of the Nile and then back north several miles through the tiny town of Qurna, up past the memorial temples. Past the hot air balloons preparing for tourists at sunrise, and into the incredible Dayr Al Bahari cirque which contains one of the most amazing sights in all of Egypt: the memorial temple of Queen Hatshepsut. "GWAAAA" 'here it is'.

 

Jellae dropped me at the trail head and drove off to hang out with his hot air balloon buddies at a nearby field and drink black tea. He was on the clock so what’d he care? I’d be seeing him again around 9:30 or so.

 

I had been studying this location for some time, since I first saw Hatshepsut’s temple on Google Earth, wondering what it looked like from ‘up there’ and perhaps at sunrise too? Well, it looks like this, HER temple.

 

Queen Hatshepsut was one of the only female Pharaoh’s. She usurped her own infant son for the throne and then deified herself, (became god) holding onto the position for about 20 years during which she accomplished some truly amazing things. When her son finally succeeded her, he attempted to erase her legacy defacing and removing her images on wall carvings all over the area, and walling in her two obelisks over at Karnak, across the river, this only succeeded in preserving them to this day.

 

The projects undertaken under Hatshepsut stand as a record of the power of the human spirit, coupled it would seem with unlimited funding. What she accomplished is truly remarkable.

 

Hatshepsut’s temple points almost directly on axis to the Karnak complex several miles away across the Nile.

 

A canal used to come up here from the Nile when the Nile ran much closer to this location than it does now. The temple sits in a natural ‘cirque’ or bowl in the mountains which offer natural protection and create a stunning and jaw dropping scene. Immediately behind it in the next valley over is the world famous Valley of the Kings. As she was female and not allowed to be buried in the Valley of the Kings, she had her engineers dig through the mountain at the rear of her temple and almost back into Valley of the Kings to have her tomb be placed there. That engineering alone is immense.

 

The site that her temple sits in is also the scene of one of the darkest days in modern Egypt’s history.

 

In early November 1997, 6 people dressed as temple guards descended on this temple from these hills and over a gruesome 45 minute period they massacred 62 foreign tourists (including three honeymooning Japanese couples) with guns and machetes.

 

Then they hijacked a tour bus out in the parking lot and would have escaped completely had not the captive driver crashed it intentionally at a police checkpoint.

Locals and the police then chased them up into a cave where they committed mass suicide rather than be captured and face trials.

 

Since this terrible incident, security all over the Luxor area and Egypt has been beefed up to the point that now there are guards with machine guns on every block, in every hotel, and anywhere else westerners would travel including all of the temples and monuments.

 

It's sketchy.

 

This location on the west bank is cool because several great day hikes crisscross the hills right here going back and forth from Valley of the Kings, to Valley of the Queens (home to all the disco’s, hair solons, and Pottery Barn’s ha!), and back down into the Dayr Al Bahari cirque and Hatshepsut’s temple.

 

These day hikes are a great way to beat the crowds and gain a unique perspective on this amazing place. I highly recommend them to anyone who has time. There are taxis waiting at every trailhead to whisk you back to your start points all day long.

 

From the top of the cirque you can see the entire Luxor area including the Nile valley and out across the open desert to the Red Sea hills in the far distance. We happened to get a rare cloudy day this morning which made the eastern sky simply explode.

 

Notice the hot air balloons taking flight down below (how cool would that be?) and the city of Luxor still lit up beyond those. I sat up here for a while after the shot enjoying a light breakfast and taking this all in. No terrorist loser can possibly detract from what this is and what one of the greatest civilizations in human history accomplished. *sigh* this alone was worth flying half way around the world for. Simply... amazing.

Technical nerd information on this image is as follows.

I had originally posted this from the hotel room in Luxor but it wasn’t done so I removed it. I’ve now had time to give it a proper tweak.

This was 3 completely different HDR processes from the nine sources RAW’s; one for the sky, one for the foreground, and one for parts of Hatshepsuts’s temple itself.

These 3 HDR Tiff's were merged using Exposure Fusion and then layer masked against each other over about a week’s time. So I’ve got the merge of the three AND the three themselves all as layers and I’m painting out stuff. Once I was happy with that, I applied a little Lucis SE and Topaz Detail to finish the image.

Various curves were applied.

You’re gonna call ‘bullshit’ but this is damn close to photorealism for this amazing scene. Every time I tried to go OTT it looked like crap, there’s SO MUCH color and UV coming out of those clouds and washing these hills that it doesn’t really need anything added to suit my tastes, in fact I desaturated it a tad on the way to the final master.

Enjoy! C.G.

   

The Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is the main gallery of contemporary art in Glasgow, Scotland. GoMA offers a programme of temporary exhibitions and workshops. GoMA displays work by local and international artists as well as addressing contemporary social issues through its major biannual projects. Opened in 1996, the Gallery of Modern Art is housed in a neoclassical building in Royal Exchange Square in the heart of Glasgow city centre. Built in 1778 as the townhouse of William Cunninghame of Lainshaw, a wealthy Glasgow Tobacco Lord who made his fortune through the triangular slave trade, the building has undergone a series of different uses. It was bought in 1817 by the Royal Bank of Scotland who later moved onto Buchanan Street; it then became the Royal Exchange. Reconstruction for this use was undertaken by David Hamilton between 1827 and 1832 and resulted in many additions to the building, namely the Corinthian pillars to the Queen Street facade, the cupola above and the large hall to the rear of the old house.

In 1954, Glasgow District Libraries moved the Stirling's Library into the building. When the library returned to Miller Street, the building was refurbished to house the city's contemporary art collection.

So much for the official stuff. My personal opinion is: interesting architecture, very interesting history, snug library with a cosy coffeeshop, but sorry, the exhibits are rubbish, though on the other side, there ain't that many.

Towneley Hall

  

The stone reads:-

 

AD 1597

E39R

AC

 

I managed to work out for myself that 1597 was the 39th year of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, but I couldn't fathom out the letters AC, their known Latin abbreviations didn't seem to fit with the other details on the stone. I sent an email to Mike Townend the Senior Curator at Towneley Hall Art Gallery and Museum, to see if he could help solve the mystery, below is the reply I received this morning.

 

This is the 39th year of Elizabeth’s reign. The stone is from a house which formerly stood on Church Street, Burnley. AC (Abraham Coulthurst) built the property which stood close to the White Hart a public house now a restaurant. He also owned Adlington House on the same street which later became the Coach and Horses. The 1597 house was later used by a horse slaughterer called John Holt.

 

The stone is now built into a wall outside what used to be the brewhouse for the Towneley Estate, to the rear of the main Hall, it is now a local history museum for the town on Burnley.

 

Thank you for your visit and your comments, they are greatly appreciated.

A bit of an experiment here and I must say I was influenced by Kay who experiments with different angles and views. I did actually think when I wore this dress 'Does my bum look big in this outfit?' This still image captures me walking onto the set prior to me recording my 'I Love Cross-dressing' video. It occurred to me I have never actually seen myself as Helene from the back.

 

It is yet another from my late night and very brief recent cross-dressing session so I apologise for the lack of variation in outfit and backdrop. I was making the most of an opportunity as it will be some time before I can become Helene again.

 

I'm not sure if I will keep this photo on-line for very long as I doubt it will be of interest to anyone but me. It was interesting to see myself from the back as I am so used to seeing myself from one angle.

The oldest trains currently in service on the London Underground are the seven car sets of 1972 Tube Stock that operate the Bakerloo services. Driving Motor 3252 brings up the rear of a northbound Bakerloo service entering the carriage shed at the north end of Queens Park station, 23rd January 2017.

I've not seen faded rear lights like that for some time either, which just goes to show how original this one is. Nice to see the original numberplate on the rear of it too. It is quite interesting how you can still see one owner examples like this one rubbing shoulders with show queens too.
