Finally I have my sparkly new camera and I’m able to go out and test it with some bus photography
We recently visited the Stagecoach Depot at Lillyhall over in Cumbria. I’d visited before but that was prior to starting the YouTube Channel so I was looking forward to going back but this time with my camera. So here are the videos which are now all up over on YouTube.

I’ve been wondering for a while about Live Streaming on YouTube, I tried it last summer but my old phone wasn’t up to the task, so when I got a nice sparkly new phone I thought I’d give it another try at a couple of reasonably local locations and see what happened. Perhaps I should […]

When the days grow shorter, the sun doesn’t rise very high causing really long shadows, and it’s cold and damp, getting decent footage becomes a lot harder. Shadows and losing the light was a definite issue on our recent visit to Newcastle upon Tyne. The videos, including a vlog, are now all up on YouTube […]
How come no-one vlogs about buses? Well maybe they do, but it’s certainly not common. As we go out and about we meet plenty of people doing photography and a fair few doing videos, but not vlogs. So I decided to give it a go.
