A few moments in the afternoon.

Given an evening without the entertainment of a young family, I could spend hours up in the study phaffing around with the digital camera, tripod and an assortment of desk and and floor lamps setting up photo opportunities.

The staging of trams, traffic and punters in ways that narrate a moment in time, coupled with a few hours (and a few beverages) photo editing on the laptop with saturation, contrast and warmth, that in the end offer 'a few moments in the afternoon'.

Patiently waiting at the Victoria St gates

The mad dash through the gates before the next suburban service.

Beware where you step near the racecourse.

Short shunting at the gates

The reason for the short shunting, the 'Festival of Trams' in Epsom Rd.

One out of the ether.

Once apon a time, Victoria Street's online existence was pretty much was limited to the Micro Layout site operated by the now late Carl Arendt, since his  passing early this year, his work still lives on in an archive of a back catalog of micro and small layouts.

Just recently it has been bought to my attention that the scrapbook section has been updated and now features work from Victoria Street from earlier in the year, for those out there who believe thay have too little space for a layout, could do themselves a favour and see what other have done with 'little' space.

The latest edition does pay tribute to Carl and his work, and I feel honoured to be a part of this edition.

so it just goes to show, your work online can still kick on.
