Sounds good, I was at Cumbernauld Museum yesterday (if you can call it that!) Some good pics of the new town being built but horrid lighting for photos and actually looking at them!

I've started a personal project on Cumbernauld, so of a then and now thing, so I've started going around takin shots in HDR. Yes sounds boring but it keeps me out of trouble!
This is one I took at a play area near the glen, the only time an empty bucky bottle came in useful

Hey I grew up in Greenfaulds from 75 - 95, don't suppose you have any pics of the area when it was being buitt, etc , my mum has some in her loft but it would take hours to find them.
