Temporary hiatus of Sheffield Daily Photo

Hi all,
Unfortunately due to other commitments and general lack of time to do a good job on this site - I'm going to take a temporary hiatus.

I'll plan now to come back towards the end of the year - so hold me to that!

Thanks for all the comments and following thus far, and please do keep checking (and all my Twitter followers please don't 'un-follow' me), I will definitely be back, might even give it a bit of a re-design.

Until then...

A stretch of the River Don looking in the direction of Park Square.
I've not been down to this area of Sheffield before, so it was a real surpise to see. There's lots of new office buildings in between old factories and workshops. This snap is taken looking south down the River Don towards Lady's Bridge (not in view), where the floods were really bad. I'm sure I'll take a lot more down here, there's a lot of interesting views.

Feeling old

Babylon 90's bar on Carver Street.
I'm not really at the age to be thinking 'that makes me feel old' very often. Maybe the sight of fresh-faced youths, that are actually old enough to drink in the boozer that I'm in, might make me think 'did i look so young at 18?', or when i say 'Oh I had that toy... 25 years ago' (an unimaginable amount of time - at the time).

When I saw Babylon 90's bar it suprised me that the 90s had already become retro, or have they? I suppose there was 80s nights in the late 90s... Come to think of it, it's taken the place of the 70s bar Flares (which has now moved round the corner next to an 80s bar).
