Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle

The first WordPress Daily Post challenge of 2016 is β€œCircle”.

Here are some Circle I’ve captured during my photography outings, see if you can spot them all πŸ™‚

The Napier Bentley
The Napier Bentley is a vintage racing car; a one off special built in 1968 by David Llewellyn. It was built on a Sunbeam chassis, but after a serious accident was re-built on the chassis of a 1929 8 Litre Bentley. It has a 24 Litre Napier Sea Lion W12 boat engine based on the Napier Lion aeroplane engine which develops approximately 550 bhp. It is seen at historic racing events mostly in the United Kingdom.
Mine Wheel
Minera Lead Mines Wrexham, Wales UK The first written record of the lead miners of Minera dates from 1296. The mine became a success story in the 18th century. Between 1761 and 1781, the city companies as owners of the mineral rights received nearly 13,000 in royalties. The mine flourished again after 1849. The Minera Mining Company invested in a new pumping engine in 1857. A year later they installed a new winding engine to raise the lead ore and to work the mechanical ore crusher. Soon after the company built new ore bins, dressing floors for sorting the lead from the waste and the ore house for drying, weighing and sampling the lead ready for sale. All this equipment enabled miners to mine ore from the deepest veins in Minera, up to 400 metres below the surface. In 1884 a new dressing floor was opened at Roy’s Shaft with all the latest machinery. The Meadow Shaft site became a dumping ground. Gradually the dressing floors were buried. Only the actual Meadow Shaft remained in use and it closed in 1914.

The Incline
A cable railway also known as an incline or inclined plane is a steeply graded railway that uses a cable or rope wound about a cable winch system similar to a ski lift mechanism powered by a stationary engine to haul trains on adversely steep grades. The Tank incline, a variation of the gravity balance incline was the “tank” incline found at several quarries in north Wales, These were worked by gravity, but instead of the wagons running on their own wheels, permanently attached angled wagons were used that had a horizontal platform on which the cargo-carrying wagons rode. Despite their name, these inclines were not a form of water balance incline
A Long Walk
A broken down 1961 BSA 650cc Motorcycle The Birmingham Small Arms Company Limited (BSA) was a major British industrial combine, a group of businesses manufacturing military and sporting firearms; bicycles; motorcycles; cars; buses and bodies; steel; iron castings; hand, power, and machine tools; coal cleaning and handling plants; sintered metals; and hard chrome process. At its peak, BSA was the largest motorcycle producer in the world.

Exploration Obelisk
Exploration Obelisk Bristol, UK Four sided obelisk is surmounted with a steel armillary sphere made by master blacksmith James Blunt – the whole sculpture standing about 18 feet high. Commissioned by Standard Life Assurance, it was intended to celebrate the mariners who departed from Redcliffe Quay in the 15th and 16th centuries to explore the New World. Men believed at that time that the Unknown deep was occupied by strange and frightening monsters. It was thought by mediaeval men that every animal from the land had a parallel under the Sea. The animals, often half fish, half beast, were based on those which appear in a great contemporary book found in the Chain Library of Wells cathedral. The creatures were modelled up in buff and terracotta clays. After glazing the pieces were embedded into polyester panels with stones and pebbles forming the background. The four panels were then screwed back to a stainless steel framework, and the armillary sphere fixed to the top.

  1. I’m scared to ask how you got the photo of the Fairey Swordfish. Must have been an adventure for sure. Your indoor church images, something I always struggle with, are remarkable. Lucky you to be at Bodnant in both spring and autumn.

    • Actually Marian it was pretty easy, the seaside town i live at has an annual airshow and my dear old friend is the guy waving in the back, indoor are pretty simple if your camera can has the option for Exposure bracketing and you have a tripod plus some software …. did i say it was simple lol. Bodnant is only about 20 mins away from me, i should have looked out for you in June πŸ™‚

  4. How do you store your photos? Did you have a cross reference system with the word wheel or circle in the descriptions? You have varied themes and places and that is why I asked. I am curious about other photographers storage as I have a bit of a workflow problem.
