A "Greenfield Weekend"

... in more ways than one ...

Worked my work in Greenfield on Saturday morning/early afternoon - headed home - change, camera - headed back for another try at Rugby League - sadly Saddleworth Rangers have STILL to break their duck this season, although they did take the lead ... and it all got a bit feisty late on !!!  Pics from game at

... and Sunday - a quick 4 minute train ride up to Greenfield (just like going to work !!!) and a wander up to Pots'n'Pans, over to the reservoirs and back to Mossley. Hardly "flaming June" though !!! Pics at

Playing with Macro ...

... and I mean playing !!!!  Trying out the 24mm lens with some extension tubes - aim being to get closer ... but it's a right bugger focus-wise, especially when hand-held - and being an f2.8 lens there's so little actually in focus !!!  Hey-ho - something to work on anyway ...

What next ??? No idea ...

Mossley All Stars v Manchester City Old Boys

Paul Scholes in a Mossley shirt - a man can dream !!!

A charity game organised by Mossley kitman Gaz Worrall ... all in aid of the Alex Williams "Believe and Achieve" Trust - early Sunday crappy weather managed to disappear (mostly !!) before kick-off and we were treated to a fun afternoon's football with some "names" on the pitch.  It finished 7-5 to the Mossley All-Stars, but I'm sure most people weren't counting.  A cracking attendance I believe (around 500 turned up) so some good cash for the above charity.

Some pictures from the game can be found here (although you'll find loads more on't'web - not that often you see that many snappers at a game up at Seel Park !!!!)

Well done to Gaz - and all who helped out ...
