I took this photograph in Bradford-on-Avon Tithe Barn on 16 December 2017 and even though it was during the day, it was dark. Movement, coupled with lack of light produced the above image.
The Tithe barn backs onto the Kennett and Avon Canal and it was against the wall that runs around the barn. It was on the towpath side that the Floating Christmas Market was held (see my Tales from the Bilge blog post).
Less of a Mistake
The actual photo I was trying to get looked more like this
However, I think the following Black & White image captures the feel of the place on the day best. I love the sword-shaped window, hanging Damoclean against the far wall.
This graffiti from Bristol can be found at the bottom of Park Street, down the steps on the left hand side and just under the road bridge. They celebrate vinyl and my initials and I love the comic style 🙂
I love the colours swarming over the extractor outlets
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 Bilgeblog.
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’.
William Henry Fox Talbot created the earliest known surviving negative of a window at Lacock Abbey. This photo is in homage to him. The Abbey was also used as location for Hogwarts in two of the Harry Potter films.
I’m often walking through the City, early in the morning and sometimes the light falls and scatters in just the right way.
In this photograph, I love the way that the light looks like its coming from the street lamp and how it scatters across the tarmac. I love how the traffic cone is framed. But then again, that’s just me…
