    I always find it fascinating when in the local cathedral to think that almost everything around me was made by hand.

    A working gas lamp, one of only two I know of here. Should look nice when the nights draw in.

    When I left Bolton in 1973 to work in Saudi Arabia it was a vibrant, proud town. I returned 38 years later to find the town centre had deteriorated to the squalor it is today.

    Good shot, I like it a lot, well spotted.The tones and lighting are very nice. As it's indoors and not in the urban environment I think it's more of a random, which has made me think the old cigarette machine I posted maybe doesn't belong in here. It was sort of in the open air and I did deliberate about it........

    Fantastic deep colour on those shots. Its funny as soon as I looked at the first one I thought what a lovely deep red like ektar. I will be starting a film appreciation thread soon or contributing to it if someone else does.

    The criteria, from post #1, taken from elsewhere...........

    "OK - anyone can take a shot of a interesting skyline or beautiful building. How challenging is that? A more challenging task is taking an everyday slice of urban innanity and turning that into an interesting shot.


    Post your shots of urban landscape fragments - stressing the fragments. I don't mean street scenes; I don't mean people shots. Not shots of a building but an interesting fragment of the building - a window, it's sign, it's brickwork, it's porch, it's cracking paint. It can be a wall, a doorway, a sidewalk, an interesting object in the urban landscape (i.e. hydrant, sewer grate, wooden skid, fire escape. Light bulb, snow on a barb wire fence, ect.). It can be boring inanimate objects but arrayed in an interesting pattern. It can be a decaying wall, beautiful old neon sign, a lone piece of trash on a cobble stone street.
    One of the things I like about photography is the way one can take something common and mundane, yet somehow engage the viewer to notice it's beauty or interestingness. Post shots of architectural details or objects that most people walk by without noticing – a photo that suggests there's something worth stopping for the next time one walks by (if one had time in this busy life).
    So ideally, there should be no people, no skies or horizons, no whole buildings or cityscapes – just fully filled frames of urban fragments from the urban jungle in which we exist.
    It can be an interesting pattern of something as mundane as a taxi sign or bike racks."

    Monarch's Entrance

    Shot probably taken countless times, but this was with a simple point'n shoot 35mm film camera. Not a zoom option in sight.
