An ominously final sounding title for my blog today but, fear not, it’s just referring to the two pictures posted here today specifically. As I’ve posted about a few times, I broke my ankle about six weeks ago while on a day trip to Manchester. The two pictures here are related to the incident.
This first image is the last shot I took before the accident. It was made while I walked down the road towards the art gallery where, not too long after, I would fracture my fibula as I exited the building.
The second picture was taken later, after my journey home, and after several hours in the accident and emergency department of the local hopital, After finally leaving the building I sat on a bench outside and waited for my wife to collect me in the car. The sun had set and blue hour had kicked in. Hospital buildings such as these were not my first choice for subject matter for this roll of film but I had little other option given my injury would allow small chance of going out to shoot more for a while. So it seemed worthwhile to finish the roll so I could at least get it developed.
