Weekly theme 27th August 2018 - Industrial

(Helen Hooker) #1

Hello everyone. Many apologies for being a few hours late with this week’s theme. I was working over the weekend and simply ran out of time to get everything finished.

So, let’s not waste and more time - here the new theme….

This week’s theme is Industrial

When I asked for suggestions for themes a few weeks back this was one sent to me by @peterphotowalks - many thanks! I think this should give room for different interpretations so here are a selection of ideas that immediately came to my mind.

Industry can come in many forms, from modern heavy industry to the technology of yesteryear. I love to photograph old industrial buildings, although they’re becoming hard to find as structures get demolished to create land for new developments.

Here, Martin Wessely has found a fabulous old industrial building to photograph, which has been tagged and decorated by local graffiti artists.

If you don’t live near any photogenic old buildings you could look for some everyday industrial structures. It could be warehouses or factories, or even part of the infrastructure of everyday industrial life, as Shane Rounce has found here, with this electricity pylon.

Don’t overlook the human element of industry either. You know someone who runs their own business - remember, industry doesn’t have to be greasy and noisy - it could be a local bakery! I found this chap oiling an old steam engine at a historical event a few years back and he was kind enough to let me photograph him at work.

So there are some of my ideas. Over to you now - lets see how many different ways we can interpret Peter’s theme!

Hoping to see some HDR goodness in this week’s entries!

Can’t remember the name of this place but it was our first stop in Italy trip. Found this shipyard next to the beach and pretty much empty since it was after hours. Enjoy!

p.s. Congrats @peterphotowalks

As usual life conspired against me this week so I’ve delved into my archive for my shot - some of the wonderful old dockside buildings in Gloucester.
