Nothing Left but the Tower
Secrets of Ivinghoe.

Late Again!

Edward VIII plaque  IvinghoeThis brass plaque on the churchyard wall marks the crowning of Edward VII in 1902. I think the way the vicar, and the chairman and clerk of the parish council all having their names on the plaque is a bit vainglorious!

Okay, it's all my fault. I drove to Ivinghoe last week to take the photos for this week's Secrets of... guided walk, and when I arrived I found there was no memory card in the camera! I should have checked before I left. The card was at home 20 miles away, in my computer's card reader.

It's been cloudy ever since, right up to the middle of Thursday afternoon when the post should have been out Thursday morning! I drove out there again and got my photos in the sunshine, and got back from Ivinghoe just after 7 pm. I've been working on the post today and it should be up tomorrow now.

Meanwhile, I'm now carrying a memory card in my wallet, just in case. At some point I'll be putting a spare card in every camera bag (there's four) to make doubly sure. I prefer the smaller 16 GB cards, enough for about 300 photos in the big RAW file type I prefer. These days, a 16GB card is amazingly cheap and  there seems little point in getting anything smaller.

While you are waiting, here's a couple of shots I liked but couldn't fit into the Ivinghoe post.

The King's Head  IvinghoeThe King's Head, Ivinghoe. This large building at the centre of the town is partly Medieval, but largely 16th or 17th Century.
