A bridge too far........................

As a Cycle Demonstration Town,Darlington cycle users can have a hard time.We have cycle lanes,cycle routes,a cycle hire scheme and obstacles.It is the obstacles that give us the hard time.One of these obstacles is a railway bridge on the Haughton Road.It is on an arterial cycle route connecting the town centre to the Eastern Transport Corridor.The railway bridge is also on the main route to Darlington College and the newly opened College and sees a lot of traffic,vehicular,pedestrian and cyclists.
Approaching the bridge,on either side,is a cycle path.Clearly sign posted are "cyclists dismount" signs and "end of cycle route" signs.This does prevent some cyclists using the footpaths over the bridge as shown in this short video clip;

Yesterday i made someone smile.Big smiles too. i gave them a print of one of my photos.

The more you look at it the more you see.It was printed at A3 size(not sure of the dimensions in centimetres),as it was rolling off the printer i was beside myself with anticipation,excitement at seeing one of my images being born into a print,a physical object rather than a picture on a screen.I enjoy this image and have decided to build a portfolio of work,slowly as finances are tight. I hope you enjoy it too.
