Chubby’s

This takeaway restaurant has been a feature in Sheffield city centre for a few decades now, and it made for a nice subject for a nighttime shot. I like the glowing colours of the lights and the way they illuminate the street outside. I think it might have been improved had someone been sitting at the window seats, but I still like it empty nontheless – it adds a sense of mystery I suppose.

The start of The Pennine Way

The Old Nag’s Head pub in Edale marks the starting point of The Pennine Way, a 268 mile long trail running all the way to the Scottish Borders where it ends at Kirk Yetholm. It was officially opened in April 1965 and traverses many areas of upland landscapes including the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales, the Northern Pennines and the Cheviot Hills (crossing Hadrian’s Wall along the way).

6 x 4.5 Gate

This picture was originally a much nicer (in my opinion, at least) square composition with the wall arcing up through the shot. Or it would have been had I not gottem my finger in the way of the lens, resulting in my having to reduce it to a 6 x 4.5 ratio crop.

It’s kinda frustrating as I almost never get my fingers in the frame – occasionally I’ve had shots where an errant gust of wind has blown the camera strap into the shot just as I pressed the shutter, but my fingers are generally immune to the breeze. Oh well, I still like the result, even if it could have been better.

Hollins

This somewhat dillapidated farm building is marked on the map as “Hollins”. Although the sun was already rising quite high in the sky by the time I took this, there was still plenty of side-light and contrast and it’s probably my favourite shot from this roll. It’s been cropped to remove a section of largely featureless sky.

A footpath near Edale

A gate on the footpath I took when heading back towards Edale a couple of weeks back. I believe the peak you can see at the far left background is The Nab on the south-eastern edge of Kinder Scout.

All Saints Chapel, Steetley

I came upon this small chapel by accident. I’d seen a cluster of farmhouses on the map that I though might make a good photo (they didn’t, as they were behind high hedges), and this 11th century church was across the road. I wasn’t able to look inside as it was locked up, but it made for a nice photograph.

Unfortunately, as with several other shots on this roll, I’d incorrectly exposed the film due to not having the lumisphere in pace on my light meter. I though I was taking an incident reading but was actually spot metering the sky. Doh!

While I’d have preferred correctly exposed shots, I don’t think this has turned out too badly after some tinkering in Lightroom. It has a bit of a faded vintage feel to it.

Grovsenor House

This is a side entrance to the HSBC building in Sheffield. It’s a new structure that hasn’t yet been occupied which stands on the site of the old Grovsenor House hotel which was demolished a couple of years ago.
