Sky, sun, colour

Posted on

There are particular emotional qualities to a sunset, sometimes hesitant, sometimes warm, somehow comforting even though it signals an ending – the end of the day. It does signal the start of evening or night and the gentle winding down of effort.
Having an urban skyline and occasional foliage also adds an extra quality.

Remembered – a past still there

Posted on

Not all of life is manicured and tidy. Shells of the old, ruins and the derelict have a testimony to bear, reminders to bring, in effect, lessons to deliver.

I have a love of old and derelict buildings. The distressed graphically and architecturally has an appeal for me. The buildings shown here are local to me, in Pitsmoor, Sheffield. I cannot give a true history – upholsterers and car parts occupied them at some point.
