Arrsers self taken photo collection.

Stood on an unmoored wobbly float without lifejackets (or hard hats, for that matter) in HSE-mad Europe...?

It's a Hamburg-registered ship, n'all.

Yep. Seems only yesterday and not twenty years ago that I started hanging around the world's harbours.

And in twenty years it's the first time I've seen anyone over the side for painting, even in the third world (or America, as it's otherwise known).
 
Late 1950's school trip ... to a still war damaged Paris ... I remember some buildings being pock marked ... can any WW2 experts identify the Tank I think displayed in one of the Place ...

You should forward that to The D**ly *ai* should they ever need to illustrate a story involving a "tank".
I was having a maudlin night last night and rummaging through the many boxes of photographs we have .... when that one was taken I was a member of the School Photographic Society so not only did I take the photograph I developed the film and printed onto Ivory Soft Glow paper . So I really can claim copyright . However that paper which may not be named probably has journalists who would not appreciate the difference between a Tank and a Tanker so it could be pointless action .

Thanks for reminding me of my own boxes of photos, slides and negatives.

At one time I wrote a computer program and printed out labels with a reference number: 120624 would be 2012, roll 6, frame 24 followed by location and a brief caption. It was all too good while I stuck with it, but then I got lazy so there is no end to the 'missing in action' stuff.
