Perth and Kinross Kirking of the Council 2011

The procession of councillors, flanked by the High Constables of Perth was led as usual by the Perth & District Pipe Band.

Following the church service a ceremony was held to instate a Piper to the City of Perth, in this case pipe major Alistair Duthie as reconition of the service the pipe band has given the city of Perth for over 120 years.

In addition the Provost was re-instated as the patron of the band, a tradition that had been lost following local authority re-organisation in 1975.

Perth and Kinross Chief Executive Bernadette Malone installed the pipe major as the Piper to the City, whilst the Provost John Hulbert attached a banner to the drone of the Pipe Major another sign or recongition of the role the band as a whole has played historically.

New Site

I've started this blog as a way of promoting updates to my main photo site.

However, at the moment my main photo site, fotopic looks to be down - permanently.

Therefore I am looking at a couple other options for where to host photos. I am going to have some on my flickr account, but its not the most pleasing on the eye, so will look to have a couple test galleries and see what one I like best in terms of looks and more importantly features.

Even if Fotopic does come back I am going to move away from it as the service now has just become too unreliable, which is unfortunate as since 2005 its been my way of sharing pictures.
