Today I decided to visit the City of York and the York Castle Museum. After my visit to the museum I went for a walk around the area of the museum. Back in December 2015, York was also hit hard by flooding, and some parts of the area along the River Ouse are still flooded. With recent heavy rain and wind by storms from across the Atlantic, it seems a never ending battle for shop owners and residents hit by the flooding. With more bad weather forecast, York remains on alert.
The image above shows the flooding from the River Ouse into the park area on Tower Street.
The photo above shows the flooding from the Ouse at the end of Cumberland Street.
You will see photographers sometimes taking photos of very random things and will ask yourself "Why?" Why Not?. Being a photographer you see things and objects different to other people. Especially people who are not into photography. To them they may see this as graffiti, but to me I see it as a opportunity for a photo. This was on the wall just along from the Castle Museum.
This is Raindale Mill, part of the York Castle Museum. This Victorian watermill originally served Newton-upon-Rawcliffe and surrounding villages. It was brought to York in the 1960's and the area it now rests in was revamped in 2012.
