ARCHIVE: LOOKING AT CARS 2 – RAINY MORNING (MONO)

 

 


.

On the Somerset Levels: Liberty Moor, east of East Huntspill, looking north to the slightly higher ground around the village of Mark; 29 Apr 2016.

A major road is temporarily closed, so commuters speed down the Levels’ back lanes to get around the blockage.

The Looking at Cars series: looking back through the nine years of the FATman Photos archives, I’m posting pictures of cars in various contexts and styles.  Earlier Looking at Cars posts are here: 1 (with context).

SOMERSET LEVELS 409 – GATEPOST (MONO)

The entrance to a field, securely chained.  Some gates in this area are quite flimsily secured – sometimes only with thin rope –  but, in many areas of the country, rural crime, including stock rustling/butchering, is increasingly frequent.

SOMERSET LEVELS 339 – MOTORCYCLIST (MONO)

 

 


.

Standing on Long Moor Drove, looking at anything and everything, when a motorbike shot past me.  Like many of the little roads (droves) around here, this one has minimal foundations and, because of the wet, unstable clays underlying it, its often prone to adopting convolutions and textures quite of its own choosing – that’s what I like, individuality!!!

The camera’s autofocus caught and stayed with the bike, and I filled the foreground with the characterful road.  The surrounding vegetation was lush with the hues of spring, which are a distraction here; black and white concentrates more on the textures and the bike.
