Bolsover castle

This was taken with my Lubitel 166 U medium format camera. Despite its limitations, it’s capable of some very sharp images. It’s a pain in the backside to focus and compose when compared to my Yashica Mat 124 G, but it still gives a very nice picture if you treat it right.

Glowing Japanese design

This glowing head was in a display case in Manchester Art Gallery as part of a wider display of Japanese design that was being exhibited when I visited earlier this year (not to see the Japanese design stuff, but to visit the Strange and Familiar photo exhibition).

Love locks

As on many bridges around the world, the pedestrian footbridge across the river Wye at Bakewell in Derbyshire is festooned with padlocks placed there by couples, friends, and anyone else with a reason to attach one.

Approaching High Bradfield

This was taken back at the start of the year, when I went for a walk around High & Low Bradfield, just outside Sheffield. The day is probably most memorable for the fact that I stumbled and fell flat on my face in the verge while walking down the very steep hill to Low Bradfield.  Luckily, apart from my pride, nothing was hurt too badly!

Metropolitan hotel

A shot taken while walking back to my car following the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride a few weeks back. This is the Metropolitan hotel in Sheffield.

Tunnel vision

I wonder how many times that title has been used for similar posts?

An older shot, from a trip to York back in the summer. I think I might’ve already posted a similar shot, taken at the same location and time, but that one was in portrait format, so this is a new one.
