End of a Year Photograph

End of a Year on the Kennett and Avon

End of a Year (portrait) image

I took this photograph at the side of the Kennet and Avon Canal, outside Bradford-On-Avon, in Wiltshire on 31 December 2017.

End of a Year – blog

This photograph is a Portrait version of a photograph I also took in Landscape format. I used the Landscape version, where I manipulated the colour, for the header to the Tales from the Bilge blog.

The blog is about us buying a narrowboat and moving to liveaboard and all that entails. There’s a serenity on a canal that I’ve yet to find anywhere else. You are spiritually away from the world. While this photograph captures nature, the telephone lines show that you’re never physically far away from ‘civilisation’.

Taken on a Google Pixel 2.

Behind Platform 13 is about to be transformed after years of neglect. There’s something fitting about this image to me – everything stripped away…

The industrial grime of the railway line is brought out, while everyone walks away…

I see the Sans Serif boldness stands out against encroaching grime and flaking paint…

Architectural Feel

I took these photographs on the way to and from work. Each have architecture as the subject but each very different. They show the diversity of styles that a City can house.

Although each image is very unique and different, they form a cohesive whole that is Bristol.
