I took a number of pictures on this street in Hull a couple of month’s back. This is the only medium format shot amongst them. I like the shot and the composition, but wish there had been a little more light – I had to open up the aperture to get the photo (a side-effect of my Mess-Ikonta having a slow / sticky shutter at speeds below 1/100 sec, which forces me to open it up in lower light, rather than dropping the shutter speed). As a result, the focus is a little soft in the foreground.

After the rain had passed

On the day I visited Hull back in November, the weather was a mixture of sunshine and showers.  This was taken after the rain had stopped and the sun was illuminating the pub. I think it was the reflection in the puddle that drew my eye.

The other way down the arcade

I posted a photo of a shopping arcade a few days ago (the 8th December). Well, here’s the same location from a different vantage point.
