With so many people sending in contemporary and modern photos as well as my own growing interesting in photographing Blantyre, I needed a website to store those kind of photos. A place to collect them all together and somewhere that doesn’t mix up the Historical information archived here.
Blantyre photos (www.blantyre.photos) has a new photography domain name, very user friendly to search engines and is hoped to become a large archive of the photos I take and indeed any user contributions. It’s fully linked to Blantyre Project, meaning when I post on the Blantyre.photos website, the photo and small caption is automatically posted on to Blantyre Project’s website, on Twitter and on the Facebook site. It’s a wonderful way to be able to share current photos of our town and of course means I now have an archive for historical photos and a separate one for modern. This is just one of several plans in store for 2016. It means I’ll soon be bringing you a Blantyre “Photo of the Day” and I get a backup facility for every photo I take. Blantyre Photos website is live now at www.blantyre.photos
