Scraping Back Time

I have always liked the “Scraping Back Time” photos that I have seen around so I thought I would give it a go.

I am currently working in Guernsey one of the Channel Islands and the only part of the UK that was successfully occupied during the Second World War so I thought I would try to create one of the time images, I only have my phone with me for the of the modern image but it did quite a good job.

I need a better understanding of post image manipulation in GIMP / PhotoShop (I still have not decided what one to use) but this is the outcome, it could do with a little more of what is going on today in the image but it’s not too bad for a first try.

Note: I do not know who took the original photo of the march but if you do I would be happy to credit them.

Spitfire BM597

On 6th March 2011 I was treated to a flight in a helicopter while one of the few remaining spitfires fly around us, it has to be one on the most wonderful experiences I have had.

This is a set of photos from the day.

 

Photography

When I first left school I trained to become a photographer and after 3 years  I decided it was not for me.

I have still had an interest in photography and I plan to start up again, so this is where my photos will be for everyone to see, lets hope they are OK.
