    A few from yesterday, wandering around a disused railway in the town where I grew up...dodging the broken Buckfast bottles, discarded needles and the occasional junkie eyeing up my camera. Sad times....

    ...not quite Nirvana.

    A fine set of images though, Dougie and I like the way they split between the grim, urban decay and nature regaining control.

    That all looks familiar. So many of these areas around. Like Pete, I like the shot of nature reminding us all who is in charge.

    Great mix of decay and nature reclamation. Nice set Dougie.

    Thanks guys...I suppose we (or at least I) tend to have fixed memories when it comes to our formative years, and tend to remember people and places as they were, rather than accept the change, especially when you no longer live there, and have been away for some years...fairly depressing really.

    Excellent Doug, loving the tones and colours a joy to view.

    I second everyone here and Julian stole my words right out of my mouth, albeit you did not use a Merrill. Very nice sir!

    Nice set Dougie I especially like the last and think Petes depiction of it sums it up well
