Title • Photo Friday: Industrial

I was going to leave posting this image for a few days (at least) as it really isn’t all that different from my entry from yesterday, but as often happens, the Photo Friday weekly theme comes along and something I’ve not long taken is appropriate (this week’s theme is Industrial).

In comparison to yesterday’s entry: this was shot with a slower shutter speed (1/30 as opposed to 1/80) so there’s more ‘movement’ within the image, but (I think) it does a less good job of conveying a sense of motion. This one is also less diffuse: from what I can remember it had stopped raining by the time I took this one, so the road spray was less severe.

My immediate thought when I saw this theme was to consider Industrial from the perspective of industrialization. I live in the North of England, in what was once a cloth producing town, and there are many interesting examples of former Victorian mill building dotted around the town and the surrounding countryside. Another time perhaps ...
