Hi Rob,

10 degrees warmer and 2 hours of heavy rain washed away most of the snow, and then the sun came out. So Templot off, boots on, and a chance to try out my latest toy - a jam pot lid. :)

It's perfect. Press it on and it collapses the lens hood, and then the barbs inside the rim just grip the rubber nicely. Pull it off and it expands the hood at the same time.

Gloves no problem, although I didn't need them today. There's open space behind the collapsed ring, so easy to claw fingers around it rather than needing to actually hold it.

The lens hood seems to have cured any flare too. I like this one best of today's crop: 



A lower viewpoint would have been better. I have far too many photos taken from 5ft-6in  above the ground.

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

It makes my knees sore taking pictures so low however I have lots of pictures taken from 6ft-5in above the ground :)....but at least when I am taking pictures of planes I am a bit nearer to them.

Back to Winter again today, soon be easter :? Remember this ? Cricket in the snow

Lucky you. I spent that day in West Bromwich. I knew there must be a reason to beware the Ides of March.

There is something about the Claerwen dam which always strikes me as dark and foreboding. Perhaps it is the knowledge that the dressed stone face is a sham (it is actually a post-WW2 concrete dam).

Here's some evening sunshine in the Elan Valley, where the dams are genuine Victorian engineering:

This one loses points for having the tops of the trees chopped off. You are allowed to chop trees through the middle, but not just the top 2ft. :(

My pictures do tend to be a bit chocolate-boxy. I take the grim & grotty too, but there's no real pleasure in taking them, and I never know what to do with them afterwards. Who actually wants to look at something like this, unless intending to model it:

I'm intending to do more of these "then & now" pictures. The tricky part is identifying the location from the old negs. Google streetview helps.

Yes I know. :)

Lighting is everything, but out of doors you have very little no control of it if the subject is more than a few feet from the camera. :(

I shall go back and have another go one day when the lighting promises to be better. No doubt by then a large metal shed will have appeared in the foreground! I was surprised that so little had changed in half a century.

Martin,

You haven't learnt in 50 years not to shoot into the light then :? Mind you gaining access to a spot that keeps the sun over your shoulder isn't easy. I bet the farm buildings see a lot less activity now than in 1968, probably used for a few old tractors or bits of machinery just waiting for a restorer to come along.

Martin.
Martin, you and I seem to have rather different views on what constitutes 'little change'!  I can see some major changes in the view, some of which I've indicated on the accompanying edited view of your 1968 picture (I played around with levels to try to determine whether the building that has disappeared was attached to the farmhouse - I think it was probably separate but can't be sure).

The roof profile of the farmhouse has undergone radical change, to the extent that I'm not sure you could treat the 'shell' of the current building as a reliable guide to what was there before.  Often one can rely upon the current basic shell as a good indication of original construction, but here's a case where this isn't necessarily so.

If, like me, you are striving to create an accurate historical replica of a particular scene (in my case the station environs at Burnham-on-Sea), a good selection of historical photographs is helpful but needs to be interpreted with care.  My aim is to reproduce the townscape as it was in the period 1948-1954 approximately.  The best photographs we have of the area date from about 1963, leavened with a few shots that were taken immediately pre- or post-World War II.  Currently I am dealing with a building whose rear elevation has undergone a number of transformations since that War, and it is exceedingly difficult to determine what the building's appearance was during the period with which we are concerned.

Building details generally have changed quite a lot since those days, the widespread introduction of UPVC windows being particularly apparent, so that today I can often only rely upon the shell of surviving buildings as a guide to their original form, and even then I need to beware of major structural changes such as those that seem to have taken place with Syntley Farm.

John Palmer wrote:Martin, you and I seem to have rather different views on what constitutes 'little change'!Hi John,

I was speaking in the sense of as seen through the camera viewfinder, and also in an agricultural sense, rather than the historical details. :)

The whole range of farm buildings could have been swept away and replaced with a big tin shed. Or alternatively converted to a residential development of barn conversions.

I don't have a map for 1968, but here is the 1901 25" map (black) overlaid with the modern map (coloured). The red X is the approximate camera position:



Based on that, I don't think the farmhouse was two separate buildings, but it is clearly now a smaller structure than before.

cheers,

Martin.

The photo-stitch join is a bit too obvious. :)

Martin,

Looks a bit like my background sheets where they cross the baseboard joints :( Wish I was artistic, then I could paint them.

Best of today's crop:



     Farmland from Leapgate Old Railway Line Country Park

The Regent Oil Co had a wartime rail-connected fuel storage depot here, but no trace of it remains.
