Day 202 – Long Drive Home…

Sunday evening motorway traffic. Some going home I guess after a weekend trip away, and more still heading back to the cities ready for work early tomorrow.

Day 198 – Once Proud…

Way back in 1975 I worked at Universal Abrasives in Stafford for a few weeks as a process engineer. I hated it, and pretty soon found another job, where I was to stay for almost 35 years before I retired! The factory and machinery have long since gone and the warehouses now only used for logistics, but the office block with this imposing facade still remains, albeit empty…

Day 182 – The Dark Hedges…

Day 165 – Open Gate…

Sometimes when I see an open gate I wonder where it leads to, and what it is intended to keep in (or out). This gate however is directly in front of our house, and leads into the farmer’s fields. It’s normally left closed to discourage casual walkers, but has been left open by a neighbour taking their dog for a walk…

Day 162 – Another Rainy Day…

So I didn’t really want to go out, but had some chores to do, and we needed food! I pass this barn quite often, and have photographed it in different weather conditions, but never as wet as this… It was always going to have to be a mono shot.
