The B&W Photography Project :: MShed - by the water in Bristol

Rediscovered some of my first experiments with monochrome photography and wanted to share ...

Instantly recognisable to anyone who has visited the Harbourside, these four electric cranes are left from the original fleet of more than forty that were used to offload the heavy cargo from the ships from the 1950's through to 1975.  Now restored to working order, they form part of the permanent exhibition at Mshed.

  1. I absolutely love these: so evocative. I often prefer to photograph ruined or industrial landscapes as they make for such interesting results, like the photography from the decay in Detroit xx

    1. I find that too - sometimes the mood of a place can come across so strongly in a still photo, and with these sorts of places and subjects the black and white really helps capture that emotion!

  2. I love these - they really do capture the emotion. Fabulous lines too, great perspective. Thank you so much for sharing with #bwphotoproject
