1020 : You Can't Beat A Gasworks

You can't beat a gasworks. If it's the kind of day when the birds aren't posing and the rural landscape looks idiotic rather than idyllic then you can't beat a gasworks. You can keep your landscapes, your seascapes, your still lifes, and your pretty seaside holiday snaps: for me, you can't beat a gasworks. You just wander down those smoke-filled drives, clamber over those poison filled pipes and compose your shot. And remember, remember : no naked lights.

The Neepsend gasworks used to be just behind my grandmother's house in Sheffield, her whole street is gone now.


Love industrial shots!!
