I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.

Personally I have never found the results particularly interesting, though I fully accept it takes a lot of work to get them looking good

I think they are interesting. Not sure the Longbridge shots were worth the effort though.
Needless Alley reminded me of the name of the classical record shop that I used to visit there in the early seventies. I couldn't recall it a couple of days ago but one look at the fifties shot and the name Vincent's jumped into my head.
I see parking on the pavement and causing a complete obstruction isn't a new thing. What could be new is if modern day coppers could be bothered to get their big round behinds of their cosy love mobiles and start booking the offenders. Parking on the pavement may not be an offence but Unnecessary Obstruction gets an instant 80 fine. So our police are either too stupid to know this or to lazy to care. Rant Over.

Volty I do know that the job of issuing Parking tickets was taken off the police some time. Ago its the job of the highways agency.

That may be so SB but an Unnecessary Obstruction notice is not a parking ticket. And out of interest, who are the highways agents that should be issuing parking tickets?
In Birmingham city centre they are issued by the council, using traffic wardens, and are called something along the line of Excess Parking Charges, thus they are not fines and are tax deductible to trades people.
And they are half price if paid quickly.
