photoblog image Sheffield eye

Sheffield eye

 

A few years ago, Sheffield had its own version of the "London eye" - unfortunately, I never found the time to ride on it!

As a result of having flu and then problems with the account, I missed having reached 3,000 images on SC - this, I think, is no. 3,029.

A fine image #3029, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray.
I hate it when I miss anniversaries.
Tom Wilson: I wouldn't mind missing a few birthdays smile

first, i love the image

it's beautifully composed

second, i could never go on that ferris wheel because i'd be afraid when it stopped on top. it's okay if they keep going, but the stopping is unbearable for me.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Sherri - it's a long time since I was on such a wheel - so long, I can't remember! But I don't think I'd have any trouble with it stopping, as long as it wasn't swaying too much!
Great shot, Tom!
And congrats on your milestone!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth

These things seemed to spring up all over the place after the London Eye was built Tom

Congratulations on your 3,029th post!
Tom Wilson: Yes, they seemed to do the rounds - no doubt it will be back again!

Every town must have one. It’s funny how the me too phenomenon works Tom, even at the municipal level.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's a trifle odd - I really should have taken a ride.
Did you get an explanation with the acct. problems?
Tom Wilson: Yes, the delay was the result of an over-active spam filter, and the problem was the result of something wrong with the Google search bar I use.
It looks good in B.& W. I know this has been to Nottingham and it might also have been to Derby and Leicester as well. Congrats.on 3,029 anyway.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian - no doubt it will be back!

Congratulations on the 3029..... that is quite the number and you showed quality, Tom.
I so like the Sheffield eye. we were once in the Liverpool Eye..
What a view that will give from above, did you enter??
Tom Wilson: No, I didn't find time to ride it - the view would certainly be something, Sheffield being built on and surrounded by hills. If they bring it back I'll definitely take a ride - and some pics!
Birmingham had one too. Never went on it. Never managed to go on the London one either!

Well done on passing the 3k mark!
Tom Wilson: Must definitely try next time it comes around, as it no doubt will.

They are increasing common. The London Eye is still the bet, though. Well done on number 3029. No idea what I'm on smile
Tom Wilson: You must have had a reboot at some time, since your archive has only 16 pics!
