End of the line


The Leeds Industrial Museum didn't seem quite as 'tidy' and well-displayed as Bradford's Industrial Museum, though in a way that provided its own charm. Behind the buildings was an area of wasteland strewn about with old rusty things. I had no idea what most of them were, though this is recognisably a locomotive of some sort. I thought it was quite photogenic. Perhaps I will be too when I'm that ancient and rusty.

  1. A nice old shunter, love the rust and ageing - probably good in b&w as well; decay always works in mono.

  3. They say rust is a photographer's friend. In this case I agree.

  4. Age and decay are so beautiful to capture. This neglected engine is more colourful than I suppose it was when it was working. Gorgeous!

  6. I agree with you. This is clearly not tended, but its rust and moss make it gorgeous.
