Hello all! This is my first post!

My girlfriend and I moved to the area at the end of the summer last year. We've really taken to 'the fresh air suburb' and I've found it inspirational regards taking pictures. I've posted a few below.

With permission of the moderators, I'd like to keep this thread running and updated (hopefully as often as possible) with some of my work. I thought people might like to see my take on some of the local landmarks!

Any and all feedback appreciated!

Hi Jimmy,

Welcome to VN. It's great to have you on board. This is a fantastic idea for a thread, but I've moved it into the Tavern where the rules are a little more relaxed and you can wander on and off topic.

Some nice shots there. Do you put them on Flickr?

Does anyone know of any recent photos from the same angle/position as old photos of Upper Norwood? Was looking at old photos of the Palace the other day and thought it would be interesting to compare with what it looks like now ie the steps and statues would be in the same place so would be a point of reference.

Nice to see someone taking interesting photographs in the local area.

 

It just goes to prove that you don`t have to travel very far from your front door to take some good shots.

 

West Norwood Cemetery could be a great place to start with a mixture of Victorian monuments, overgrown areas and wildlife..

 

A couple of my efforts are attached to give some idea of the place.
