|Romiley's New Lamp Posts, 2003/4 (3/9)|
A journey through time and space with an Aiptek PenCam
14. Painting Day.
A composite picture taken on another dramatically cloudy day. The new lamp on the right, at Thresher's, has been painted black and the painters are now lurking in the white van with the yellow hydraulic arm parked in front of the Stock Dove, gathering the strength to blacken the fancy-topped lamp on the left.
15. The first blue-sky day after Painting Day.
The painters have been and gone, the new lamp posts are now proudly black and gold, and the sun is shining on Romiley on a Bank Holiday Monday, which has to be something of a record. The apparent break in the white lines in the centre of the road is there because this is a composite of two pictures and two inconvenient cars parked in the foreground at the right side of the road were erased to improve continuity.
16. The old people's flats again.
Another take of a classic scene. The lamp posts have gold stripes now.
17. Romiley's hidden bank.
The large trees at the NatWest bank.
18. A view of what's opposite the precinct
As Romiley Forum is on the south side of Compstall Road, it's a place of shadows, which the pen camera doesn't like. So this is composite picture of what's on the sunny side of the street.
