I was hoping for some sunny days during February in order to takes some good pictures for the end of Month blog slide show on Youtube. I have done three such slide shows. The one I like best is December 2010 thanks to the snow.
There is also the Abingdon Arts Festival Photography competition to think about. Closing date 5th March. All the entry information is here.
I take a lot of pictures so it is very difficult to choose between them. These two were from the other side of the River Thames. I started noticing the ripples caused by the water funelling through Abingdon Bridge. Even without sunshine it made a good effect.
A familiar sight and sound in Abingdon is the Classical Guitarist.
Not as frequent, but I have seen them more than once, are these fully-grown Shetland ponies from Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire. Here to raise money for the Phoenix Children’s Foundation. They say the money they raise in Abingdon will be spent on helping children here in Abingdon.
Stert Street is being resurfaced – in places – overnight from 21st to 23rd Februray 2011. The road engineers have also drawn some little arrows down near the junction with Bridge Street so that would be good if they do add direction arrows at that point.
A sign up Spring Road asks you to Kill Your Speed as you approach the Old Cemetery.
Inside the New Cemetery the pathways are being improved. They are to be resurfaced once the granite edging is done. I just hope the undertakers don’t try to break the land speed record in there.
