Hebden Bridge 2 – The town

On such a sunny day, it was little wonder that so many people chose just to sit…….

…or take a leisurely walk along Hebden’s shopping streets….

….or enjoy alfresco eating or drinking.

Some people brought their scooters to show them to others in that community. The last time that I went through Hebden, my drive home was delayed while a procession of more than a hundred scooters and their riders passed me going towards the town. Traffic lights were over-ridden by police to allow the riders to pass without a break. The frustration I felt though was that I hadn’t been on foot to photograph them.

But if some wish to eat and drink, someone else has to work to serve them.

And if some wish to enjoy shopping in the market, traders have to stay at their stalls.

But it is nice just to relax with family or friends.

And, for me there was a chance to try my hand at street-photography.

But at last, it was time to head back to the railway station to catch my train home.

My name is Gerald Murphy. I am a retired local government officer. At the time of my retirement I was an IT manager and had associated responsibilities for training. I had previously been involved, in various organisations, with aspects of industrial training and management development. My main hobby is photography and, until 2016, hillwalking in Snowdonia. Sciatica has put an end to mountain walks and, as a carer for my wife, opportunities for photography excursions are now more limited. Since July 2022, I have started using this site as a photobook.
