The Old Town

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The old town, as seen from my bedroom window..It is a truly remarkable view and one that I shall never tire of!----Photography, as a hobby, has grown on me since realising the potential of modern digital cameras!---I have dabbled with 35mm SLR film cameras in the past but gave it up due to the prohibitive cost of processing. Since becoming mildly computer literate, digital processing has opened a whole new world for me and this technology has allowed me to build up my confidence to take photos. Panoramio has been the perfect conduit to share my snapshots and has given me the opportunity to join and participate in the family that is Panoramio..and for that I am truly thankful!

Hi Jim, you sure have a great view from your window! This is a wonderful photo with beautiful colours and lighting! Hope you enjoyed the Christmas holidays and I'm wishing you a very happy New Year! Greetings, Anne

Hello Anne ;>) good to see you again and thanks for joining me from my window!! Recently, this view was transformed by the blanket of snow which has covered the old town for more than a week now, so we really did have a very white Christmas!!

I took some photos which will be up-loaded eventually!!

We slithered and slipped on the roads in our cars, and the footpaths remained hazardous for pedestrians!! Our local authorities are too slow to respond and the holiday period exacerbates the problem !!

I look forward to your photos in 2010 Anne.

Warm wishes for a very happy and joyful new year

Cheers ;>)

Hello Jim, I can imagine how beautiful your town looks with a blanket of snow! You got lucky having a White Christmas! We had a lot of snow before Christmas but most of it melted, and today it started snowing again, but Christmas is over!:( So I look forward to seeing the photos of your snow-covered hometown! Cheers, Anne
