  • Photo365 - 291 - French Horn Hotel

    A traditional pub from Worksop that's been empty for a few years. Renovation work has been done to the roof recently I assume to make the building weatherproof, but the scaffolding has gone so I guess it will stay empty for some time now. I thought I...

  • Photo365 - 287 - Shadows

    Today was another remarkably warm day, and as the sun was low in the sky shadows were interesting. This is my rusty metal resting near a brick wall, and a garden chair causing the shadows. I split the elements in such a way that it now looks like two...
