The Friday Nighters went Sunday as well as Friday. 23 loads removed from The Hole In The Wall and clearing at the stope dig with cart run test. I shall have to go again...

    A doubting Mike Wise with the cart arrives on site. The cart at the stope looking back to the way in. Yes it fitted well everywhere. In the stope dig with dodgy rock. Looking over the stope dig to the cart run onward to the bridge. Cleared last night. A geode found in the rubble...

    The cart has been rechristened " The Granville " as some folk dont deserve the accolade. We seek inspiration where we can find it.

    Nothing that emanates from the " Granville " brain is ever of a practical use. You will see how brilliant the concept is. It can be pulled in a near horizontal position as well as upright.

    The " Glanvill " spoil removal cart specifically designed for work at the underhand stope in the level. Original idea by APG Initiatives and built by Chiptruss Caving Solutions.

    I am now bombarded by AI editing apps etc on Facebook so serves me right for looking. It does make you realise how many there are. There was an image of a mouse inside a flower on line today. Point is can you believe it ? Anyway some good measured responses to the question which shows ultimately...

    I think its unwise to be too critical about other folks images. I would say find your own way and dont listen too much to others. Try to see things differantly. The web is awash with formulaic images. Most that we see now are enhanced by editing or apps and AI in someway. Photos are just two...

    You dont need AI to alter the concept in an image. Me in The Orkneys. The Bradford on Avon Walking Event sign was also badly abused.
