Drainpipe and climbing plants on a wall in Wimborne, Dorset; 1 Oct 2008.

I turned into a courtyard off the main street in Wimborne and this spectacular and (especially) writhing vision opened up on my left.

Minimal colour, almost monochrome and in fact also looking good in b+w, but the rust tints on the pipe bring this picture alive. The pipe is just about on the left vertical third.

Technique: F6 with 24-120 Nikkor lens; Fuji Provia 400X colour slide film rated at 500 ISO.


  1. I immediately saw it as a pipe carefully composed so that it was directly in front of a tree with blue sky behind it. Even knowing that it’s on a wall won’t let me stop seeing it that way without considerable mental effort. Very striking!


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
