I love wandering around the scruffier parts of the city centre. You tend to come across all sorts of abandoned and interesting structures. One of them was the interior of this, which is actually an arch from a railway bridge, but it made me so curious to see what was inside it.
I wanted to do a shot which focussed on reflection, and while one in the countryside of a still lake would be great, there aren’t many of those in the city centre!
The church in evening sunlight is lit up, and the dull greys and browns become bright, shocking almost.
From my bus stop, going home, I have been watching this slowly build up from a few beams, to a shell, and now after months it looks almost complete…
That’s what they are. The things which you see on every plate glass building, covering the windows in various forms, blocking out the light – or at least a percentage of it.
I have said before how much of my city is old set aside new. The university campus being a prime example of this. This archway is around a little back part of it, near a few hockey pitches, but the framing was perfect for a shot.
In a part of the city known as The Custard Factory, so called as it used to be a custard factory, (who’d have thought it?) is an old chimney. It’s painted, but the image isn’t very visible from this angle. It certainly shows off how striking the tower is up close though.
Belated, unfortunately, but I will admit to completely forgetting to blog about photo yesterday after a pretty long and hectic day!

Snow is still on the ground and on the roofs, but what I have always liked is that it tends to melt on one face and not on others, leaving high contrast on each side.
