Last weekend Mark and I visited the Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset, and spent several absorbing hours wandering around with our cameras. It was a fascinating museum, packed full of tanks, and we were both surprised at the sheer number of different ones that there were.
I decided quite early on to focus mainly on the details, as all the colours, shapes and patterns were more appealing to me visually than the bigger picture. I didn’t have the patience to wait for other visitors to move out of the way so that I could shoot the individual tanks in their entirety, and also felt that the museum signs and labels, whilst informative, spoilt the overall views. As I took so many photos, I have collaged them together as opposed to showing them separately, but I like the way that this works and think that it makes a more interesting picture overall.
Finally, here’s Mark after having a well-earned cup of tea in the museum cafe
