I walk passed a large fenced off area most days and have been meaning to photograph this sign recently.
The fence went up when a huge Victorian property disappeared a few years ago. The large bricked building was demolished to make way for luxury homes. They never materialised and now all the fancy signs are looking a little less than luxurious…sign of the times.
I don’t think the company even exists any more…no doubt the land is being sat on until the economy improves, but the wooden fenced area is starting to look shabby. I imagine there are sites like this all over the country.
The title is a Roxy Music song – which is actually about a rubber doll, but i thought it suited this shot (with a different meaning)
I have one egg left in the carton. It got left and is well past the sell by date. I was about to throw it when I saw this photo. It reminds me of a man in one of those sporty car seats, so the title kind of has two meanings.
Another iPhone shot.
Today I also used a resampling to increase the size of an iPhone photo to 40in square and the result was very good. Compact cameras need to brace up for a rough ride ahead.
I woke up this morning to see sunlight finding its way though a window, and then out through a door onto another door. One of the good things about winter is that the sun is low and the bright sunlight always slips through the cracks. A simple shot on the iPhone / Hipstamatic showing where it landed.
The pattern from the reflection of the door handle hasn’t picked up which is a shame as that added extra sparkle
As I went to rephotograph it the sun had changed position and the moment was gone
Those who’ve been following my blog will be aware that I’ve been documenting the building of Worksop’s new cinema. I went a few weeks ago and little change had taken place since phase 6 so I didn’t post my photo. Then I had a week away.
So this morning before work, now the nights are drawing in, I visited the scene to find fencing has been put up preventing me from standing in the same spot! Doh…I couldn’t have predicted that. Now I cannot complete my timelapse. Here’s a view from the other side of the pillar I used as a reference point.
I need to choose a new spot to finish the series. So I moved across the road and will do a front view, which actually looks better but it’s a busy road so there’s usually cars parked or passing.
