    Very nice! A couple of duplicates there airfieldsman which makes it difficult for some members with slow internet connections to load them all.

    Is that at the top end of Trumpington Street?

    I agree with what you say there Peter, the second and fourth photographs need deleting. As these were taken with my digital camera I couldn't really tell how clear they are, after putting them on photobucket they are just a load of letters so it's not til I've actually posted 'em on the forum that I know what they look like. This plaque is about 7ft up, I'm only 5'6'' [see last photograph] so with the bumper against the pillar I opened the sunroof stood on the seats and leaned as far forward as possible to get as-level a photograph as I could. I know that I must have looked a spectacle as the people passing by would stop briefly, then resume talking as they carried-on. Being a beautiful day the streets were very busy as well. Yes this Department of Engineering is towards the top-end of Trumpington Street on the corner of there and the Fen Causeway Road A1134.

    Something not quite right there AFM. The system is to look at your photos using one of the many free or expensive album / editing software packages, and then decide which ones to edit and / or post.

    This post should continue on the Photo Tips Thread.
