Pubs in decline

Pubs are an industry in decline. Many (away from town centres, at least) are either closed, struggling, or transformed into family pub-restaurants. There are still loads of pubs about, so they aren’t on their last-legs just yet, but it’s a common sight to see one boarded up these days, sadly.

Catching the sunlight

This small, seemingly abandoned (or at least in need of some repairs) building is located in Eckington, a few miles from my home. I’ve glanced at it on several occasions as a potential photo subject, but on the day I took this it was sat in brilliant sunlight, so I stopped the car and took the shot.

Winter field

This was taken back in January on a walk where I wish I’d worn some Wellies – although the ground looks crisp and frozen, the snow was in melt and my feet were sinking up to the ankles in places.

Cropping out a light leak

Sadly, many of the shots on this roll of Neopan 400CN suffered from light leaks because the film was slightly loose on the roll when I took it out. This is another that has been ‘rescued’ via cropping (although I’m ever so slightly bothered that the very top of the antenna is missing).

The looming wheel

Looking east along Market Place in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, UK. The famous Crooked Spire can be seen in the distance.

Several shots on this roll of Neopan 400 were affected by light leaks (the film had now wound tightly onto the take-up spool, and so some light got in when I opened the camera and removed the film. As a result I’ve had to crop some of the shots (including the one of some market stalls below). Not ideal, but at least they’re not completely written off – although one or two of them still show the leaks a bit even after cropping.
