Blackpool Bus

Bus-Graveyard-174

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.

Tree of Life

Edenwood Mill an old derelict and abandoned Mill in Ramsbottom, one of many built in the Rossendale valley for weaving, bleaching and printing of cloth.

I was struck by its contrasts, inside dark and gloomy the glass in the windows long gone but nature is not so far away. Through the open window the morning sun shone through the soft light revealing the details of the mill that had been lingering in the shadows.

Edenwood Mill also know as Rose Mill was first constructed in 1801 for weaving, Printing and Bleaching but has been empty since 2001

Flowers for the Abandoned

flowers for the abandoned

Urban exploration of an abandoned and derelict House in the Rossendale Valley Lancashire. The flowers I picked from the gardens arranged in vase on a table that was there, the only piece of furniture.

This image was of a series of Photographs that I took in this position, strangely when I arrived home there appeared a ghostly image to the left of the table that even today remains totally unexplained…

Churchyard Gates

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.

One of Manchester’s traditional public houses Peveril of the Peak is a grade II listed building built in 1829. The pubs unusual name comes from the old stage coach that ran from Manchester to London in the 1800’s. The Pub was upgraded around 1900 and was given is stunning clad of ceramic tiles.

The Peveril remains one of Manchester’s most famous Landmarks.


 

Man’s Best Friend

Captured at Ramsbottom, Lancashire at the World War Weekend, these handsome chaps Barry and Jasper caught my eye straight away.

The background is of the Union Jack combined with an old map,  I have added a texture  layer and adjusted the colour to try and achieve an aged look.

After taking this photograph and sending a copy to Barry, I would often find myself bumping into him for a natter – sadly not seen Barry for a while now – hope he is ok.

A little 7 sport ladybird (coccinella 7-punctata) that I came across in Parbold in Lancashire. This is the most commonly spotted ladybird by people and was found in bramble bushes.

If you spot any lady birds be sure to help out the Ladybird Survey by taking a note and sending them a picture.
