You don't need to be Columbo, nor indeed Sherlock Holmes, to deduce that my favourite building in Nottingham (and the one I have photographed literally hundreds of times) is the former Home Ales Building in Daybrook; last year I curated a limited edition photobook comprising nearly forty images (choosing the final cut was a nightmare, I can tell you). However, for some reason there are a couple of glaring (to me, anyway) omissions from Vol. 1 (that's right, I'm working on the next collection as we speak) - namely any photos of it in the snow or with a rainbow in the background.
However, this evening in the midst of a tremendous downpour the sun came out in force and swathed Nottingham in a spectacular light and provided a rather splendid arched spectrum. Quick as a flash (see what I did there?) I hotfooted it from one end of NG5 to the other and fired off a few shots; some of them may go in the next book, some of them may not. The one above certainly will.
Don't suppose there's any snow forecast tomorrow?

The initial run of my book sold out (I did a couple of maker's fairs last year) but here's a link to the digital copy.ReplyDelete
Another superb photo, you were so lucky with that one. Not that I'm wishing for any snow for a good while yet but yes that should make for a great image - how about swirling fog too?ReplyDelete
I just enjoyed another peruse through your digital book, look forward to hearing (and seeing) more about Vol 2.
It can be my Winter project!Delete
Not sure if my next book will be a Vol. 2 or a brand new subject(s); I'll see how I feel nearer the time. Thanks for your kind words btw.
And Matt Berry covering the Rainbow theme? That's so charming!ReplyDelete
The whole album is like that. I can't recommend it highly enough. And although he plays it with a straight bat it's still enormous fun.Delete
