I have to agree with you some of them are solved in a trice like you say. But I have found some just as quick not using that method then I find out I could have got it using GIS. so then have say that i found it using our normal method but it still makes you feel guilty that others may have thought that I had cheated.
I also must admit the ones that do not show using GIS are harder to find but on the other hand they are almost impossible to find and I am always surprised when they are eventually found by some really hard work by those involved.
I have got to the stage when I see some of them I know that I have no or very little chance of finding it so leave it to the others. The rest do not give in so easily but getting older and cant concentrate for long spells anymore but it does not stop me from trying. I Look forward to my Friday nights but find things getting a bit difficult.
When I used to google for Photos in a certain area of the Uk that is what you normally got.Nowadays you get things from all over the world thrown in.
The last one from Manchester I got fairly quickly but not using the fair means. My Brother stayed there for about 15 years so I should have recognised it but never did.
I have noticed Aitchbee is getting better finding some of them, I can see him making Number 1 in the years to come.
Anyhow you are doing a good job entertaining us all Brumas so do not get upset by the odd one that is found quickly and keep up the good work.
