Abandoned wine glass amongst debris
At Fleetwood in the UK lie several old ships - some wooden - some metal. All they have in common is they've been abandoned and left to rot in the same place.
The vessel Vicky Leigh LL273 at Ferryside, Carmarthenshire. I've not been able to find much out about it other than it seems to have been there since 2014. Processed to add grain, grit and an atmosphere of abandonment. This is one of a series of images I have of the vessel including a colour version of this.
A disused church in the Lincolnshire countryside. This isn't distortion here - the building really does lean in an interesting variety of ways
Is she trapped, is she not either way this image of a young lady, face unseen, looking out through a grime ridden window is a little mystery all of its own.
A gritty mono conversion of an old milk pail on a quarry tile floor
Dark and eerie sprial staircase
A clinker built fishing boat, slowly coming apart at the seams.
This is a montage of several original images of mine - Talacre lighthouse and a wreck at Barry Island in Wales. A reminder of times gone by when both the wreck and the lighthouse were 'of their time' and now. . . Just history
The long abandoned Bangour hospital, once a role model for treatment, now a collection of slowly decaying buildings
The Peak District of derbyshire has many, many such abandoned barns. Planners won't allow conversion to accommodation, farmers don't need them - so they are left to fall down.
Kilchurn is just one of the countless abandoned castles in Scotland, dwarfed here by the surrounding misty hilltops. Also available in colour this conversion has benefitted enormously from a gentleman who I swear 'sees' in mono.
A forgotten wooden boat left to rot almost seems as if it is wanting to keep maybe just a little bit in touch with the sea. Watch House Bay, Barry Island, Wales. Please note this image has been processed to reflect the dereliction of the subject and as such has grain / noise / grittyness.

Seen at Skipool Creek this old and possibly somewhat past its best crab pot sits high and dry.
This is the northern end of the Woolwich foot tunnel in London. It is just one of the foot tunnels under the River Thames that not too many people know even exist. In this image you can see it slope down quite steeply, then the angle levels out once it is below the River Thames.
This is the Merchant Seafarer's War Memorial situated at Britannia Quay, Cardiff Bay, Wales. The artist is Brian Fell and it is in memory of the merchant seafarers from the ports of Barry Penarth and Cardiff who died in time of war. Commissioned in 1994 by the Cardiff Bay Arts Trust it comprises a melding together of a man's face and the damaged hull of a ship. DSD_8031a
This beautiful lioness (panthera leo) is seen enjoying the morning sun. Averaging between 1.4 - 2m and weighing in at between 120 - 190kg lions are apex predators - they have no natural predators and are the only members of the big cat family to form social groups.

On a village walk I found these keys - couldn't resist the image
A montage of mono images combined to reflect mechanical engineering of years gone by. All images used in this montage are original to me and available to purchase individually upon request.
steam control valves on a beam engine, claymills. Engine in motion so some motion blur at leading edges.
A small dragon gaurding the stairs with a decided None shall pass attitutude. Another of my warped mind creations combining two original images plus several digital effects.
An old building, a garden ornament and a bored pixel pusher.
Loco number 1 on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway preparing for another passenger run. This line uses 1/3 size rolling stock and is a rather enjoyable way to spend a day.
A one third scale steam locomotive at the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway takes on water before setting off on another journey.
Along the Scottish coast you will find Bow Fiddle Rock, a formation where an arch exists in otherwise solid rock.
Sandsend is a small village between Whitby (seen here in the distance) and Staithes on the east coast of the UK. The steps here form part of the extensive sea defences.
This is a long abandoned Ram 3 tank that saw out its days as a target. Over 2,000 Ram 3s were built between November 1941 and July 1943 and despite this being within WW2 they were never used in combat, more as training vehicles.

The boat to the right was known at various times as Mint BF300, Wistaria OB327, and finally Elsie May) and worked out of Oban in the late 60s to early 70s. Now they sit, slowly decaying and possibly one of the most photographed things on the isle of Mull, Scotland. This image is also available in clour.
The long abandoned wooden vessel Pavonia, HL114 (formerly WK53) provides a home for a young tree sprouting from its deck. This image is also available in colour.
