Times change

I really like the way this quaint village scene came out (it’s in Eyam). It has a nice contrast and crispness about it. It has a somewhat nostalgic air, or a least it does until you notice the modern cars in the background and the fact that the phone box has now been modified to house a defibrillator instead of a payphone. Hopefully no-one will attempt to make a call with it! 🙂

Winter walkers

My initial plan for this photo was just of an empty scene with the track curving around to White Edge Lodge in the middle-right of the frame but, upon seeing this couple and their dog approaching, I held the composition until they were close and had a separation between them. They probably wondered what I was doing, standing still with a weird-looking old-fashioned camera as they walked by, although both responded to my greeting of “good morning” in a friendly way. 🙂

Completely in love

I’ve taken shots of the love-locks on this particular bridge a number of times before. It’s not festooned with them or anything – there are maybe a couple of dozen or so – so it’ll probably be a while before the bridge is in danger of collapse and the authorities turn up with bolt-cutters.

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.
