Day 215: barging through

discreetphoton My local camera club has set a challenge to its members, and Iím tasked with scouring one of the areaís major pedestrian and leisure routes looking for photographs. My travels today took me alongside one of the canals in town. Having had a good look today, I can see why theyíve called it a ch...

discreetphoton 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; ISO 400; F/8; 1/320s. VC on.

Day 208: Rotherham Minster

discreetphoton 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 dodging to build up the exposure time in the sha...

Day 206: Door to nowhere

discreetphoton 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.

Day 97: Rotherham Minster

discreetphoton 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 case, this is a single image (no HDR for this shot)....

Day 74: Peck House

discreetphoton 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 contrast to the area around the college, which is g...

Day 73: Clifton Park fireworks

discreetphoton 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, although it was a fight for space. Nikon D300; Ta...

Day 52: Rotherham Dusk

discreetphoton 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 weíre getting to the time of year when more and mo...

Day 31: Cold steel

discreetphoton 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 the town as they do on itís economy. The immense...

Day 16: Geometry

discreetphoton 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 of this sort of structure, but from a photograph...

Day 2: First outing

discreetphoton 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 way the lens handled the high contrast in this sc...
