Last month I managed to miss doing my Project 10, so as I was in Shrewsbury with my daughter yesterday, I decided it would be a good opportunity to capture another set of ten. Shrewsbury proved a little harder than other places and I had my first rejections, three in all, though one of those was willing to have his picture taken, he did not want a copy and did not want to give his name or it to go on the web, so I passed on him. Oh, and Ollie, please apologise to your dad for his face not being the centre of attention.

Today, colour felt right, so just one black & white. As usual, a big thank you to all my willing subjects.

Yesterday I was photographing the cross country at Pauntley in Gloucestershire. It is always nice to go somewhere new and it is certainly a lovely part of the world, between Redmarley and Newent. The course offers everything from jumps ideal for tiny tots on the lead rein (so mums can get over the fences too) going right up to a three foot course over testing undulations. The going was superb too.  The organisers are very friendly and relaxed and if you have not taken your horse there, you should. For more info, Pauntley.

Much Wenlock was the latest town to feature in my Project 10 series. If you have never been to Much Wenlock, it is worth a visit one day as there is a lot here of historical interest and a wonderful ruined Abbey too. It is also not far from Ironbridge and the industrial revolution. In 1850 the first ever Olympics were held here, the brainchild of Dr William Penny Brookes and if you wan to visit this year, the 124th games run from 9th to 12th July. The modern Olympic Games started in 1896. For all things about Much Wenlock.

So here are the faces I captured yesterday afternoon before the rain came down.
