    Day 215: barging through

    Day 209: Anything thatís not nailed downÖ

    Öor is. You canít turn your back for a minute round here it seems. Amazingly, I would have expected this spade to get lifted. But apparently that would be too easy. They just took the shed from around it! Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 60mm...

    Day 208: Rotherham Minster

    I took a walk into town this evening to shoot the most prominent of our local landmarks. I used a small ballhead underneath the lens to keep the camera at the correct angle, although the rest of the tripod stayed in the car. I did a bit of sensor...

    Day 206: Door to nowhere

    This sealed up doorway is in the grounds of Rotherhamís Boston Park. Apparently it used to form part of the College of Jesus, founded by Thomas Rotherham and now demolished. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 18mm; ISO 200; F/10; 1/250s. VC on.

    Rotherham Minster Today I decided to have a look inside Rotherham Minster. Iíve been in once before, but Iíve only seen it by candlelight. I hadnít initially planned to shoot an interior today, so I hadnít packed a tripod. That being the cas...

    Day 74: Peck House

    Peck House I've driven past this building a few times before, and it always manages to catch my attention. There is a fair bit of dereliction around this area of Rotherham (just around the corner from the KP Nut factory), and it's in stark co...

    Day 73: Clifton Park fireworks

    Clifton Park fireworks Tonight we went to an organised display in the centre of Rotherham. They drew quite a crowd, and were supported by a travelling fairground fleet. It seemed to be appropriate to try and capture all of these elements, alt...

    Day 52: Rotherham Dusk

    Rotherham dusk This is just a little further to the right than a shot I showed a few days ago, but the difference in lighting conditions changed the emphasis of the composition. I love the half-light. The colours are wonderful and rich, and w...

    Day 31: Cold steel

    With the drizzle obscuring the morning sun, we had a similar effect to that of a low mist over the town today. I chose a high and distant vantage point to shoot one of the local steelworks, which have as much significance on the social history of...

    I stopped on the way home from work tonight to shoot a building that wonít be around for much longer. Itís a real victim of its era, and is due to be torn down in the next year, and will allegedly by replaced by another supermarket. Iím not a fan...

    Day 2: First outing

    A double shift at work today left little time for photography, but I was fortunate enough to have good light on the way to work, and grabbed this on the way through. Hardly an exciting composition, but it served a purpose. I was impressed with the ...
