A Century for Sandwell

Having spent the last few days roving around the rail network, I thought I'd better get back to the day job by updating WME - and what better way to return to update action than with a milestone to celebrate: WME Sandwell passing the 100 photos barrier.

To be honest, the landmark had rather crept up unnoticed, but is another indication that my galleries are generally becoming more substantial. The update itself sees the arrival of a Smethwick Rolfe Street Station collection, currently containing two similar platform views taken exactly two years apart. There's a welcome addition to the Midland Metro collection, with a tram at Trinity Way finally breaking the Hawthorns' previous total domination of the collection. Talking of new locations, Bearwood Bus Station now features on Sandwell by Bus thanks to a photo of the 447. As updates go, this one was fairly constructive anyway, but the 100 up news just makes it even better.

Not that WME Sandwell is the only gallery receiving some action. WME Wolverhampton is still ticking over, with a photo of Tettenhall Old Bridge joining the Staffs & Worcs Canal, whilst there's also a view of some local shops thats been added to Exploring East Park. Whilst we're talking of milestones, its worth noting that WME Wolves is closing in on the big 200, just another 8 photos to go...

Turning finally to Exploration Extra, and some good news to report here too. I've added two new collections, both featuring some of my latest photos. London: March 2007 features a couple of bus photos taken at Victoria Bus Station during my outing with Rog and Woody earlier this month, and I've got the Rail Rover 2007 collection off and running with bus photos at Hinckley and Nantwich. I couldn't resist putting these photos online, although it may be some time before there are any follow-up photos joining these collections. Still, its just great to get some new stuff out there, as I'm usually dealing with photos that are over a year old!

So that's that, a busy week of exploring followed by a useful update. I've still got loads to do on the galleries, there's plenty of photos to shift around and hopefully a few more will appear out of the archive before too long. So keep checking in on WME, you never know what might be appearing next...
