Late Shift

Another from last week in Didcot Loco Shed with my best photo mate Roger. The smell of the hot oil took me back to my younger years when I was an Engineering Craftsman working in a die casting foundry and machine & press shop - happy days in simpler times.

There were a group of 25 photographers there that night - a really nice bunch of people. I think we all had a great time talking cameras, f stops, hyperfocal distances, eating the excellent curry at “half time” and, of course, taking photos.

I took so many shots I’m still picking my way through them so warning - there may be more to follow.

Have a Happy and Peaceful Easter

Could be a scene from a film - Alfred Hitchcock maybe with that hat. Fantastic and a fav.

I gotta say, I like this one the best so far. Evocative, atmospheric. Very nice. From the backlighting to the shadow on the right to the sepia tone to the girl on the shelf to the Churchill figure with a clipboard...lots of stuff to see.
