Class War protest against Ripper sick tourist attraction in East End – 12th August

Only just over a month behind time! Includes my holiday pictures from one of England’s smallest designated AONBs (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) a designation that adds to those larger areas of outstanding landscapes which are National Parks, and is rather more specific. Arnside & Silverdale AONB is only 75 sq km and includes “almost 100km of well-maintained footpaths and narrow lanes and byways” most of which we walked in our week there.  And the walking was more important for me than the photography, though there are a few half-decent snaps, all made with considerably lighter Fuji-X cameras & lenses rather than my usual Nikon gear.

It was good to get the news that after another 48 days of strike action the dispute at the National Gallery appears to have been resolved and that PCS rep Candy Udwin shown in my picture below has been reinstated.
