With a morning to kill before my rehearsal today I decided to take a stroll around Gloucester Quays to take some photos of the derelict dock buildings. Since I last visited just over three years ago nothing much has changed and many of the warehouses are in the same state of disrepair. I particularly liked the textures created by the different layers of advertising slogans painted on the wall of one warehouse and I couldn't resist the weathered allure of another building which was predominantly constructed from rusting blue corrugated iron.

#1 is a great finding and tells a story of older times.

These derelict places are treasure troves of material for great photos like these one, Helen. Corrugated metal is a great subject...

Gloucester docks are great, we've spent some time wandering about there too, there is always lots to see.. I think in the 2nd bank holiday in May it will be invaded by tall ships...

Beautiful post, I like the texture that the bricks made in the first shot (improved thanks to the writing) and also in the second one.
