Back in April I mentioned in Post 324 that one of my oldest and dearest friends, John, had died. Earlier this week I went to his funeral. John was a biker, so here are some more biker photos to mark the occasion.

Thanks Cheshire Lines, I certainly hope that it's a fitting tribute. Here are some more 'Biker John' photos, and then it'll be back to standard model railway photos. That said, I've got quite a few photos with John as a small distant figure in the urban landscape, so I think I'll drop these into the thread from time to time and see if people spot him. Rather in the mode of Where's Wally.

I've been trying out the cameras (four!) on my new mobile phone. One of them is a close-up camera, which is described as a 'macro', and another is 'live photo' - whatever that means. Here are a few of the results.

I haven't had any time for the railway this week as I've been redecorating the house, but here are some photos from a couple of weeks ago.

I used the draw option to tidy up the background a little on the first photo.

That is very nice! Did you paint that yourself?

Thank you for your positive feedback Glencairn and Darkscot. Regarding the LMS Diesel Shunter, no I didn't paint it myself. That's exactly how Hornby made it. It doesn't actually belong to me, it's my son's. Four years ago for his 11th birthday, I offered to buy him a train pack and he chose this one. It came complete with three wagons for the grand total of £35. If I had realised what a brilliant runner it was, I would have bought another half a dozen. Its reliability has earnt it the name Old Faithful.

Here are some more experiments using with the macro (close-up) camera on my new phone. It's certainly got potential.

Can you see the touching up I did on the Pigman photo using the computer?

As you seem to like the shunter Darkscot, I did a little photo shoot with it. There's a sort of beginning, a middle and an end.

Since I took these photos, I've changed a fair bit of the scenery on the layout, so hopefully my next batch of photos will have a slightly different look to it.
