COPYRIGHT and OTHER SMALL PRINT: Oh, and I’d like to think that it goes without saying, but I guess I’d better say it anyway: the text offered up on this site is my work, except for the fair use of quotes, and is (c) Luke Bennett. so, please don’t use my text without giving a source credit back to me and this site.  Images are (c) the original photographer and I claim no ownership of them or imply any third party endorsement of this site or comments made by me here. I use the images here with source citation to help make my points on this non-profit site. It is not practicable for me to seek formal permission for use of the images that I’ve found readily available on the internet, but if any rights owner would prefer me to remove an image, just let me know.  All views expressed here are my own, and are not necessarily those of my employer, Sheffield Hallam University. Finally, sometimes I write about dangerous places or pursuits. Sometimes I write about law and liability issues. In neither case am I giving you advice on whether a place is safe, an activity a good idea or legal or advisable. Right, I think that’s covered everything…
