Horses on a hill

I’ve had some unfortunate news this week and my mind’s not really focussed on updating the blog. I’ll try to keep posting daily, but there may be a gap here and there. Apologies.

Here’s an old shot from early 2017.

I thought I’d dig something older out of the pile today, so here’s a shot taken on a trip to liverpool in late 2016. I was with my wife, so it wasn’t a photography outing, and on those occasions I feel a little guilty about taking my time over shots, so a lot of them are taken on the fly and grabbed when I can, as was the case here. There’s undoubtedly a better shot to be had of this location, but I’m not too unhappy about this.

Little fluffy clouds

This art installation of folded cloth lattices resides in the stairwell of Sheffield Central Library. I’m not sure how long it’s been there, but I took more photos of it a couple of years ago. They remind me of clouds when viewed from the side.

On a staircase in a museum

A bit of an oldie today (well, if just over a year can be classed as such). This is the staircase in the Museum of Liverpool. I spent more time taking photographs of this staircase than I did looking at the exhibits!

I took this photo back in January. I’d visited the villages of High and Low Bradfield on the same day (and fallen flat on my face while striding down the steep road to Low Bradfield!) and stopped off at Damflask reservoir afterwards where I grabbed a few shots.
