This image is a re posting of one that I took a while back in which the sky was wrong. When I last took this shot it was a sunny day(a long time ago) this time the conditions were completely different it was dark grey and raining, but I think it came out better this time. The Pied bull inn on the corner of this street is haunted by a victorian cellerman who is said to have been seen wanderiing down the road, perhaps still trying to find his way home after a busy evening all those years ago.

I love this- such an eery feel from the picture, like a horse and cart should be coming round the corner with a man in a black drape!! Brilliant

Lovely street. The process is very good, I get the mood of a gray, rainy day.

It's nice to have old buildings and streets to shoot. Where I live, everything is new. The highlights here look a bit too bright, and the shadows a bit too dark.
