A Year In St Ives - Photo Diary

A Year In St Ives - Photo Diary

Since January I've been compiling a photo diary - A Year In St Ives.

Each week I've been taking a variety of photos around town - landscapes, streets, events, people.

I haven't been able to take a picture every day - it's been a tricky year for a number of reasons.

But I have posted 98 photos up to now showing St Ives through the seasons. I'll be adding more as the year progresses into Winter.

Take a look - any comments welcome:
