Silent night


All is peaceful on Albert Terrace in Saltaire. The scene on this cobbled street at night probably looks little different from how it looked when it was first built in 1854. That's kind of comforting, I feel.

OK, some purist will point out that the lamps used to be gas and the mill chimney used to have a fancy top... but never mind! The sepia toning is entirely natural.

  11. Ooh, I DO like this shot! I half expect a heavy mist to envelop the scene and for Sherlock Holmes to appear! Happy New Year to you Jenny and many thanks for the insights on Saltaire you've given during 2012. Enjoy your period of rejuvenation and refreshment and look forward to your images again when you're ready.
