Seven years Blogging

I started this blog was seven years ago on the 12th September It was not the first blog I had written, I six  months before I started off with Spuds Rural Explorations with Pillboxes along the Thames
The blog only came out when I had material to use in it like about once a month.  After I thought to showcase some of my photos in a daily blog and I went straight in with a 365, posting everyday for a year, this was a little too much and I soon changed to the present format. The Church Explorer started a week after  this one with a blog called Joe It was first called My Grave Place but I soon realised that I was more into looking at churches as well as headstones so changed the name to The Church Explorer though you might have noticed I missed the l out on the name by mistake but I'm afraid I could not change it. The Church Explorer is 7 years old today.
 So in Seven years blogging I thought I'd show some photos of when I first started.

 This was the photo from my first blog, taken at Buscot Weir

Wales is always a favourite place for me to get photos
Taken with a smart phone of the Town Crier at Newbury

 Swan looking over the floods at Wallingford

This fellow did not like his reflection in the window and kept attacking it

Didcot Power Station at Sunset, all that is left of it now is the tall stack
Fireworks over the place I used to work
 The place which was my home from home for the last 15 odd years of my working life

And the place where I worked all that time watching it being built to how you see it here.
Those are just a few photos from the blog you can see more if you troll through the archive. Check out my other blogs as well
