More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Leeds Castle day trip photos

Here is the link to around 100+ photos I took on
the trip to Leeds Castle
on July 26th.

About 75 were taken on 35mm film, the rest on a small digital camera.

They are numbered & named either with or without "digital".
A very few have "crop" in the name which is self explanatory.
Otherwise they are as taken - just quickly through Adobe Lightroom to de-vignette
and give an over-all colour adjust.

When I have time I'll give the best a Photoshop treatment to clean up any areas within the frame that need it. The sort of thing Lightroom just can't do.

This is the link to the "Leeds Castle" set of photos:

You can download any photos you like from Flickr.
Click on the photo you want, then click on "all sizes".
The largest for nearly all of them is well over A3.

Hope you like them - here's a taste

Below is the above shot retouched in Photoshop - with a mild effect added.

There's a few more in the "Flickr" panel on the left column here
which you can also click on to get to the full set of 100 photos.

(All retouched photos do have "retouch" in the name)
