Pictures from the exhibition: Two doors, Albert Road
Alike yet different, satisfyingly symmetrical yet each with its own character, these doors - on the 'posh' houses at the edge of Saltaire village - remind me of two shiny conkers.
I wasn't able to choose many 'landscape format' pictures for the exhibition, due to the curved wall in the café. I wanted to include this one though, as it's one of my own favourites. I think it subtly sums up quite a lot about Saltaire, and yet it is not an oft-photographed subject. One of these days I will publish a book consisting entirely of photographs of Saltaire's doors. They fascinate me.
I can never look at this photo now without remembering Vicki Lane's rather wicked comment, made the first time I posted the photo. ;-)
Just want to say a big thank you to everyone for your encouraging comments too. I may have been feeling a bit down with a cold (now much better) but I am definitely lifted up by your kind words.
