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!

Aye Mick, you can get blathered well before you reach the last pub!

I'm quite fond of the old place (t'auld spot) myself!

Chow60~~~~Le agradezco hacer el esfuerzo para descubrir los primeros mis fotos digitales cada vez .. Mi última cámara era un viejo de 35 mm Praktica réflex comprado en 1980 ... yo sabía muy poco acerca de la fotografía a continuación .. y muy pocas fotos se tomaron en ese momento. . el alto costo de procesamiento de negativos de película en color me hizo desistir de la fotografía hasta el advenimiento de las cámaras digitales .. no fue hasta el año 2006 se le renuevo mi interés en las cámaras .. Desde entonces, mi entusiasmo se ha disparado .. se ha abierto una mundo totalmente nuevo para mí, especialmente desde que llegó a Panoramio en 2007 ... y otra vez en el 2008!

Muchas gracias por su buen cumplido :)

Hi Jim!

Yes, my first note was pretty far in time, but I think we have not lost our contact! In last years your activity speeded up, while mine was changed. And yes, I remember about our conversations with good memmories too.

Now it's a little funny to write in English, while I learn German since more than a year. It is terrible, but I started to forget English. Perhaps my head is too little. Anyway, as I remember you have worked on the Continent earlier, perhaps you speaks German ;-)

Unfortunatelly I am on Panoramio very rear, so I can answer others comment very slow. I hope you will be patient!

Nowadays I have tousands of photos on my HDD, but I have no time and enough intention to fight with Panoramio Upploading Applications, so I think they will remain on HDD.

Hop's now I should go. I hope we will in touch in the future auch!

MBagyinszky~~~Hello Misi :) I remember commenting on your Whitby view over the North Sea, from the bench seat, and I remember your reply too...more than five years since. It is good to touch base with you again. Unfortunately, and to my shame, I speak no other language than English..Fortunately, I have discovered the excellent Google translator which permits me to communicate with peoples across the globe! As for my library of photos, I also have far too many :))

Fernão Silver~~~I greet you warmly Fernão and offer my sincere thanks for your friendly visit and generous appraisal...the L+F means a lot to me!

Kind regards to you both
