Title: Curly Hinge
Location: Writtle, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: Another lovely old door hinge for the 50@50 today. Not quite as well kempt as the one in 50@50 #21. But bags of texture here, which was enhanced with a sepia treatment. Found during a GNPC Photowalk in Writtle.
I’ve had another busy month for photography. It started off with me still working at the BBC’s semi-deserted Television Centre for a few days covering the Local Elections, and I’m still trying to catch up with the backlog of urbex images I made there. I promise to publish more soon! But I have been able to show you some of the Face Down Tuesdays I made there, namely the Dangerous Dentures Edition, Paint Shop Pro Edition, and Silent Escalators Edition.
May meant Mono MayHem was back! A month of mono image making, as well as my usual Photo A Day shots. Here’s one which was nearly selected for 30th May, a view of Dunston Staiths, taken on a murky bike ride along the Tyne:
During my stay, we embarked on various northern outings, including a Tynemouth Cycle ride:
A visit to the North East Aircraft Museum for Planes, Trains & Automobiles with the NPWalk folks:
And a Rural Ramble Around Urpeth geocaching with Alistair – here’s another butterfly we saw:
So, as you can see, plenty of varied subjects during the merry month of May. Here’s hoping Flaming June will live up to its name in weather and photographic potential.
