Phone-box portrait

Another set of photos from the wonderfully misty day a few weeks back. A fairly mundane subject but the light and atmospherics work wonders I reckon.

Natural architecture

Spider webs have an odd feature of being both a little creepy (have you ever walked face-first into one in the dark?) and beguilingly elegant (watching a spider construct one of these natural works or architecture is both fascinating and also slightly humbling). Sometimes though, when they’re festooned with dewdrops and bathed in a shaft of early morning sunshine, they’re simply beautiful.

On suburban streets

After parking the car with the intention of a walk in the countryside, I spotted these houses across the road. I liked the uniformity of shape and the way they receded down the hill.

A big tree by Clumber Lake

Adox Silvermax has quite a pleasant grain to it. It’s more prominent in this shot because it was a little underexposed. The clouds ‘pop’ nicely in the sky thanks to the red filter too.

In Sheffield

There’s a bit of camera-shake in this shot but, in this case, I don’t think it harms the shot and adds a little ‘grit’.

Standing on a corner

While I was waiting for the sun to appear behind a cloud so I could take a photo with my Mess-Ikonta, I grabbed this quick shot of a re-purposed industrial building with the OM-1.
