Balloons Ancient and Modern

Balloons Ancient and Modern

Had lunch with my Mum today, and she showed me her recently compiled album of vintage postcards, all of which were from the Isle of Man.  Imagine my surprise and delight when I came across the one below, of two Victorian ladies posing in a resigned but not altogether grumpy fashion in a fabulous propellered […]


More Phelgm in Sheffield

More Phelgm in Sheffield

Some more work from Phlegm from the first weekend, shot in the burnt out sports hall which featured three of his massive pieces.  This one was floor to ceiling, making full use of the space available, and obviously far taller than me.  In this regard, I was pleased that I had hefted along my 70-200 […]


Phlegm in Sheffield

Phlegm in Sheffield

More work from the wonderfully imaginative Phlegm, all shot in the same abandoned building in Sheffield, a rotting hulk with lethal floors and bare-boned ceilings, looking as if they would shed metal and tiles on our heads at any moment.  I have used various filters and textures here to enhance the work and to contribute […]


Strange Creatures

Strange Creatures

This building was potentially tricky to get into, as it had been very thoroughly boarded up and there was no possibility of getting in through a window or door.  However, thanks to Mark’s excellent folding ladder we were able to gain access through the open roof space, in order to photograph these pieces by Faunagraphic […]


Rocket01

Rocket01

  These are photos of work by Rocket01, whose talent speaks for itself and needs no further input from me …… Also a little input from Faunagraphic in the top photograph as well. Shot in abandoned buildings in Sheffield, South Yorkshire at the weekend.


I See You

I See You

I hate it when this happens – I cannot decide between these two slightly differently processed photographs which one I prefer or which one is better – the darker and more moody version with the emphasis on the painting, or the brighter one that shows up more of those tasty textures?  I would welcome any thoughts […]


Riding to Nowhere

Riding to Nowhere

This was taken in the final location of our day trip to Sheffield, in a rather lethal building with rotten floors that felt squishy underfoot, but worth the danger as it was full of wonderful work from Phlegm, who had obviously had plenty of time to work undisturbed.  Mark and I have our joint photography […]


Procession

Procession

Mark and I went up to Sheffield in South Yorkshire at the weekend, to find and photograph street art in the area, following information on locations from our friend Romanywg (author of this fabulous book on the subject).   We braced ourselves to get up very early on Sunday morning to make the three and a […]


More East London Street Art

More East London Street Art

Another selection from my recent visit to Shoreditch in East London, of some of the excellent street art that is so prolific in this area. This one is by Farkfk, and through my post-processing using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 I have selectively coloured the image in an attempt to make it my own, i.e. […]


East London Street Art

East London Street Art

Street Art was one of the first subjects that I photographed “seriously” in summer 2008 after I had first bought my Nikon D700 and 24-70 f2.8, which was the only lens I had for a while until I could afford to buy more. When Mark and I went to East London last Sunday to wander […]


I Like It When A Girl Can Walk Right By

I Like It When A Girl Can Walk Right By

Something a little different for me, in that it is (a) black and white and (b) not textured! Mark and I had a photographic wander around Shoreditch in London’s East End on Sunday, specifically looking for street art by some of our favourite artists. Mark had previously seen and photographed this piece by Trans and […]
