Fruits of labour
Salts Mill. It's a monument, not only to its founder Sir Titus Salt's vision but also to the thousands of ordinary men, women and children whose labour in the huge textile mill enabled that vision. On a smaller scale, I am equally impressed by the labour that has produced the row of leeks in the foreground, all ready for the harvesting. Normally I try and avoid getting too much of the allotments in my photos of the mill. This time I decided the whole view made a good picture. I noticed the patterns the glasshouse made and the colours seemed nicely harmonious.
