Well, that took my breath away! What an hour. The tweets were fast and furious and, according to Topsy, there were 826 tweets featuring our hashtag in the hour (although I know there were also quite a few in the run up to the hour – and just afterwards as well so the total by 10pm was 850 tweets). I noticed that @LuckyDog_Tod tweeted, “STOP! my paws are burning!” at one point. Sorry Tod!
Guest star tweeter this week has to be Denise Howard OBE, who gained quite a few followers, I see. Great stuff! And a special mention to @RipleyCastle (Just in case it was Sir Thomas Ingilby himself doing the tweeting!)
@Yorkshiredays asked people were asked to give three words to sum up Yorkshire. Here are my favourites:
And this gem from co-founder of Yorkshirehour, @RomanticCotHols
My 3 words for
? “Love Yorkshire people” And for that, you really must show her some Twitter love and follow her!
I got sent to Twitter jail (for being up to my daily limit on the number of tweets you can do in a day) so, I’m sorry if I didn’t get to tweet with everyone. I’ll try and catch up with you in the week.
It was great to see people tweeting about the fabulous event organised today by Welcome to Yorkshire at the Barbican in York. We were there and it was great! (Touching standing ovation for the Yorkshire Regiment too.) I’m also pleased many people retweeted my plea for support for Welcome to Yorkshire’s ‘back le bid’ campaign to get the Tour de France to start in our glorious county. As a long time fan of le Tour, I would love to see it come to my home county. How great would it be to see Cav in the Yellow jersey at the end of the first stage?
Thanks to all of you who posted comments last week. Again, I’d love to hear your comments about how #Yorkshirehour is working for you so, please get posting!
See you next week – 8-9pm Wednesdays.

Life is all about new experiences and, this week, we jumped in at the deep end – almost literally – to try something new: underwater baby photography. And, are we glad we did? What a fabulous and rewarding experience it turned out to be. Now, Richard (Triggerfish) Aspinall is no stranger to underwater photography and his images have been featured in magazines such as UltraMarine, Practical Fishkeeping and Marine Habitat as well as Practical Photography but, photographing babies underwater is a new experience.
A few weeks ago, a local mum emailed us to see if we could do some underwater baby photos for a group of mums in Huddersfield who were attending a local swimming class for babies. They had been offered the chance to have photos taken by a large company linked to the class but they found the prices inhibitive and were worried that the ‘three submersions’ rule might not give them the shot they wanted. As a small team of two photographers, we were able to tailor our ‘offer’ and come up with a package that suited everyone in the group: one hour in their local pool, for their exclusive use, with as many submersions as they felt they needed (while ever their babies were happy to play along). Consent forms and payment was sorted out in the weeks running up to the photo shoot so, once we’d all met in the health club foyer, it was off to the changing rooms, then into the pool.
After a short briefing from Richard, the photo shoot got underway and while the ‘subjects’ were busy posing, the rest of the mums, dads and babies were able to splash away happily while I captured some lovely candid shots of all the fun.
