PS. With lack of photo comp interest why not make it bi-monthly all the time.

Thanks Craig; and yes I had already thought of making the photo competition bi-monthly, I have been too busy myself to get any pics this month apart from the one below.

As the November winner I think I'm supposed to select the Dec/Jan winner which is Explo's demolition of the QEII hospital and the link to being born there. :thumbup:

On the point of very few entries, to be honest there's very little out there that is easy to access. A lot of the hedgerow stuff has been picked up and scrapped.
I'll keep looking on my weekend cycling jaunts.

Thank you Michael and well done Charlie :claphands: yes many old 'hedgerow hero's' have sadly succumbed to the gas axe which is a shame and one of the reason's I wanted to save a machine of my own. I also note that building and most demolition sites are generally boarded off to prevent public access, more recently the old market building's have been demolished in Wolverhampton but the site is covered which makes photography very hard. Must try harder myself as I have not posted very many photo's of recent; more to do with other commitments and getting older or am I making excuses.
Well done anyway Charlie and as always many thanks to those who enter, thank you all. :brravo:

Cheers guys :-)

Even when you do see something of interest now it's hard to get a good shot. I was amazed with the QE11 demo as you could go right up to the harris fencing and watch from 1m away from the machine!
