Sowerby Bridge Floods, 3 Years Later

Boxing Day 2015 saw flooding devastate the Calder Valley from Todmorden through to Brighouse, including my home town of Sowerby Bridge. I took a small set of pictures then of the ongoing flooding and with time to pass this morning, I thought I would return to roughly the same area and re picture some of them.

Venice, Italy. 30th October 2018

Recently I got the chance to visit Venice, Italy I was there to visit my daughter who was staying there for a couple of months as part of her university degree. I don't go Everyday was plentiful for taking pictures so I have broken down the pictures I took in to places I can remember, or sets based around the day I took them. This first set was taken on the 29th October 2018 and there are over 126 images I have published on either Clickasnap or Flickr, with a select few viewable on here. The city is architecturally fantastic with tight pathways between buildings, canals alongside buildings, footbridges plentiful. Despite spending 5 days there I don't feel I got the chance to explore all Venice had to offer, although 5 days was more than enough time to spend there from a personal point of view.
Every picture featured here was taken on Tuesday 30th October 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera.
