Taken during our St.Ives visit in May this is the famous bridge in the centre of this attractive Cambridgeshire town. Once again the weather was poor so I have done my best. Incidentally this is where my son, who I featured on 11th.September, started his interest in fishing, the Quay is packed with young lads fishing at weekends. We lived here from 1978 until 1989 before moving to the East Midlands where we are now.
Formerly known as Slepe, in the old county of Huntingdonshire, this ancient riverside market town is now named after the Persian Bishop, St. Ivo. St. Ives, now within Cambridgeshire, stands on the River Great Ouse and is famous for this bridge and the chapel of St.Ledger on it. There used to be an upper storey to the chapel, now long gone.
I had quite a good night at my Camera Club on Tuesday and although I didn't actually win I got three Highly Commendeds for http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Northumbrian_Nightfall_/ and http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Shadows_At_Bradgate_Park_/ and http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/People_%A3%21%3Bhash%A3%21%3B4%A3%21%3Bslash%A3%21%3B7_/ . I will try harder in November.
