Cropthorne Walkabout 2011
Due to the loss of my Fotopic site in March 2011, I felt that I was not a position to be able to photograph both the Evesham Regatta and the Cropthorne Walkabout that year, so I chose to do the latter as it would not result in as many photographs to deal with.   I decided that on this occasion I would go on the Sunday as this would give me the Bank Holiday Monday in order to construct this collection, and to make it a "greener" exercise, I would walk to the event rather than take the car (bear in mind that it's about 3 or 4 miles walk from my house to the village).
The one thing that worried me about returning to this event was the possibility that I would end up with a set of photographs that were too similar to the 2010 set to be worth putting onto this site.   However, this fear was (by and large) unfounded as there were several new properties open, and a lot of the ones I did last year had made changes to their gardens.   I visited all the open properties with only two not being recorded in this collection (1 had no significant differences that I could see, and I felt that the other didn't offer any significant photographic opportunities).   The only thing I didn't do was to go inside St Michael's Church.
