Mystery Picture – Eight of 8ight

Well I hope you have enjoyed the latest series of 8ight images?
A series of eight mystery pictures from around Loughborough, the town of my birth.
They were taken during my trip last month to dear old blighty.

Some of the locals who over the years haven’t managed to escape may whinge and moan about the town, if the letters page of the Echo are anything to go by? But there is still something about the place that I miss. Far far easier for me to say having escaped to paradise I know.

As I look out of my window over the Savannah of Far North Queensland, Australia there’s not a cloud in the sky, no traffic has gone past for nearly an hour and it is the main road from Cairns to Broome. Bugger I speak too soon! There goes a Grey Nomad towing a caravan behind his Landcruiser.
Some Loughboroughans may think I have the perfect lifestyle? It is but if I could just be back in the Market Place for one moment. My arm around the Sockman, a pint in hand… Sigh.

Today’s Mystery Picture is the last in the series. Where is it  ??

It is interesting to read the threads on the Loughborough forum especially from some members who call my old town a dump and long to leave. Well I did manage to leave  but I still miss the place, it still has a certain feel, even if most of the faces of the town are now a blank.

Mystery Picture – Four of 8ight

Eight Mystery pictures taken around the town of Loughborough.
The town of my birth.
Each time I come home I notice many changes, so at least it’s nice to see something that hasn’t changed even if it is only an old preformed concrete fence. Many years have past since it last stood proud protecting a once thriving pioneering company of the town.
Now it only guards time.

Mystery Picture – Two of 8ight

A new day begins and only my second one back in Woopity Woop Woop since my recent holiday back to dear old blighty.
As I look out of the window I can see that it is a nice sunny day, the wet season is finally over. The road is more busy with huge Road Trains full of cattle and tourists towing caravans behind straining Four Wheel Drives.
Grey Nomads are abound, some in Winnebago’s having sold up their belongings and homes. That’s if Grey Nomads are still agile enough to bound about? Still they have a zest for life and a love to see and travel this great country. There’s not a mobility scooter to be seen.

I had a great time in dear old Blighty. A chance to catch up with old friends and visit old haunts. I enjoyed walking around the streets of my birth town shooting with my camera whilst at the same time trying not to get run over by all the old and not so old in their bloody mobility scooters. (Don’t get me started!)

Anyway this weeks theme is “Mystery Picture”

In honour of the “Loughborough Monitor” photographers of old.

A new series of 8ight mystery images taken around the town of Loughborough.

See if you can identify where they were taken.
