Who watches the watchmen?

Perhaps it’s these two, sat atop Over Owler Tor and gazing out at who knows what (well, it’s probably the view up the Hope Valley).

I’m a sucker for photos like this one. It’s a mundane subject, but the tones and depth of field are really nice. I love the way the barbed wire fades in and out of focus as it enters an leaves the shot.

Millstone Grit

I had a day off work this week and took a trip out into the nearby Peak District National Park. I was mostly trying my hand (not very successfully) at some landscape stuff using my digital camera, but I still stuck a couple of film cameras in my bag and managed to polish off a roll of 120 Portra 400, plus the remains of some Tmax 400 in my Pentax P30T.

The area I visited is littered with millstones in varying stages of completion, hewn from the local gritstone. The one in this photo must’ve been photographed many, many thousands of times as it lays right next to the footpath leading to Over Owler Tor.

Cowabunga dude!

In the early afternoon light, this large gritstone boulder on the moors above Hathersage, UK, had the look of a face, so I took the photo. It was only after scanning the negative that it struck me as to what it reminded me of – a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (albeit one with a slightly lopsided face), complete with the tail of its bandana fluttering from the left side of its neck.

Or maybe it just looks like a big rock…
