The machine

I photographed the last days at Timken mill in Desford, England.

The milll there rolled hot steel for use in all manner of tubing.

I really could have taken a month shooting around the mill as the industrial setting was very conducive to dramatic photography.

Again this is an old shot. I had hoped to process something new but I ended up clearing out the garage instead (and maybe playing the odd game of Supreme Commander).

Isn't it typical? I spend all last month and the one before working on a new site but have nothing to put in it.






Pull your finger out!

And get out and shoot some new stuff! The theme for June is "Blue". There you go, accept the challenge!

Are we doing another monthly theme?

That sounds great to me. Thanks pal, I needed the motivation. Blue it is.
