Pubs in decline

Pubs are an industry in decline. Many (away from town centres, at least) are either closed, struggling, or transformed into family pub-restaurants. There are still loads of pubs about, so they aren’t on their last-legs just yet, but it’s a common sight to see one boarded up these days, sadly.

Catching the sunlight

This small, seemingly abandoned (or at least in need of some repairs) building is located in Eckington, a few miles from my home. I’ve glanced at it on several occasions as a potential photo subject, but on the day I took this it was sat in brilliant sunlight, so I stopped the car and took the shot.

Shadow man

I obviously misjudged the metering on this shot and underexposed the photo. However, I think it’s another one of those cases where a happy accident produces fortuitous results. The deep shadow between the houses emphasises the man and the high contrast does the same for his shadow on the wall.
