The Bishopton Photo Gallery
A new format and easier I hope, most pop up when clicked and go away again when you click the photo again. Some are in a slide show, all should be enjoyable!
The photos we have here have been collected over many years and .... the are copyright, however, if you request the photo we're happy to offer the full sized one for you if we have it.
All our photos are archived and backed up.
Pictures tell us so much, I remember looking at one of the history photos and seeing the way a workman was dressed and the name on the van, life was different back then.... and that's what they'll be saying 50 years down the road.... then again, they'll have so much more to look at!
Interestingly, the pictures in these galleries represent ony a small fraction of photos taken. Some are scanned and some are digital.
If you want to show off your own photos then the photo blog is for you. We can set this up for you and you can add your photos as you please, I find we lack family type photos - we have guidlines... no one (as the subject) under 14 without parental consent.
We'll be adding photos almost every week, especially to a new section called "a week in the life of the village" this will be over the year but its a photo project to show the people you do see with those you don't.
Our community is special and if you're reading this from outside of Bishopton, yours is too! All communities are! Like our freedoms, they have to be fought for and nurtured they disappear from our grasp and they are REALLY HARD TO GET BACK!
So please enjoy our photos as much as I do.
