Old Buses gently rusting away. The one to the rear is a East Lancs-bodied Leyland Atlantean it had been ordered by Bolton Corporation but by the time it was delivered new in 1972, Bolton Corporation became part of South East Lancashire North East Cheshire bus company.
Old rusty, abandoned Lancashire Red Bus, sadly this one had been in a crash many years ago but hopefully its parts will be used to keep other historic buses keep going. There is a strange obsession as a photographer to photograph anything Rusty..
Old abandoned Blackpool and Farnworth Bus, faded colours that once transported happy holiday makers to our once historic seaside town of Blackpool. “There’s something for everyone at the Worlds Greatest Seaside” Now it takes it place as part of a Rusty Bus Graveyard.

Black and White photograph of an Old abandoned Double Decker Bus in Lancashire.
Part of a series of sculptures at Lee Quarry in Bacup, part of the Rossendales valleys of Stone series. This sculpture is called Ferro-terrasaurus and was inspired by industrial Machinery created by Robin Dobson. Photographed on a Moody day the rust and cloud really add to the presence on the hillside.
I visited this local North Manchester Church and was struck by the contrasts of the place. I photographed the Church from the graveyard gates which were a little overgrown but the gates almost framed this pretty church view. I have limited the colours in this picture to sepia tones to keep the scene simple. I hope to visit again soon as there is so much to photograph.
This sunset was made all the more interesting by the storm that was gathering in the distance over Wigan, soon it would be heading towards me in Bolton Lancashire, it made a more unusual sunset photograph.
After weeks of rain the sun made a welcome entrance and for a few minutes it uplifted my soul, maybe spring was not so far away after all…Photograph taken of a church reflected in the flooded fields of the Fylde in Lancashire.

Old Victorian Jetty taken at St Annes on the West Coast of Lancashire. I waited for the sun to come into the right position and was treated to some sun beams.
Here is a link to some old postcards of St Annes Pier The Jetty taken in 1904 and 1926.
