Gone to pasture

I spotted this old tractor at the weekend when I noticed a footpath went right through the middle of the farmyard. It’s a spot I think I’ll return to as there’s loads of scope for some interesting photographs. I got a couple more on this roll, so you might see those in a day or two.

Life among the ruins

This shot was taken not too far from the S1 Artspace building which had an exhibition last year entitled “Love among the ruins” which was a collection of photographs taken of people going about their lives in the Park Hill Flats complex in the 60s, 70s & 80s, so the title of today’s shot is a spin on that.

This shot isn’t linked otherwise, but sometimes a weed growing out of a crack in some concrete steps makes for a pleasing photograph.

Work continues

The refurbishment of another section of Park Hill flats is underway and the block in question is cocooned in scaffolding and yellow netting.

This was taken on a roll of 2001 expired Klick XD200 film that I was shooting for this year’s Expired Film Day. Due to the age of the film, I overexposed it a couple of stops. It’s not come out too badly though – a little extra noise and a slight pink cast are the only real signs of its age.

Winter field

This was taken back in January on a walk where I wish I’d worn some Wellies – although the ground looks crisp and frozen, the snow was in melt and my feet were sinking up to the ankles in places.

More still life

Another one of my still life attempts from the weekend. Although shot on Portra 400, I converted this to black and white as it looked much better (the melon was very pale, with barely any colour to it anyway).
