I'm delving into pictures that have been bulk uploaded in the past, that I've held back to avoid swamping you with images that are similar all at once. They don't show up in the thumbnails below, which is strictly chronological by the date the pictures were submitted - so you might not see them. But you will if you use the Latest Additions button.
Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to you all. Contributions and comments welcome as we go into 2017, and far more regular updates of the Image Library. There's a resolution for you! Cheers Steven
Large pictures now back, and comments problem fixed!

The Large Pics facility on the Orkney Image Library of Orkneycommunities.co.uk has returned, and I am pleased to say can in some instances be applied retrospectively (approx 2 years back). Any favourites you want to see large, get in touch and I'll see what we've got on file.

Also there was a short-lived problem about a fortnight ago where comments were added to the wrong pictures. This should be fixed, but if you added a comment between a week and three weeks ago and it hasn't appeared, please add it again.

Sad news
Added on 07 November 2011 at 20:05 by Steven Heddle

It is with much sadness that I report that Phil Brough collapsed and died yesterday, Sunday 7th November 2011.

As you will know, Phil was a great supporter of the Orkney Image Library through his comments that enriched so many of our pictures, and of course through the 150 pictures that he contributed himself and shared with us.

I know from my own conversations with Phil that he derived great enjoyment from looking through the Image Library after he had retired.

Bruce Moar, in an email sent yesterday evening, sums it up well:

"Phil put some good stuff on the library over the years and was always good for a yarn about it if I bumped into him in the Royal.

It always amazed me that he had gone to the trouble of learning how to work a computer in the first place but he took great pride in telling me Ian's boy (Aaron I think) had shown him what to do.

I was by him just over a month ago to quiz him about his old Hotspur days and after I had been by him then Kenny Heddle I thought to myself I should get them together for an evening and record some of their stories for posterity.

Sadly it's too late now.

I, like everyone else I'm sure, will miss his contribution to the Image Library."

Our thoughts are with his wife Margaret, and sons Alan, Graham and Ian.
