The Sunday Fraggle report~ Part 1

Decent weather on Friday had me out and about in my neighbourhood with the Fuji in hand, and just down the road from me is Wardley Colliery, a disused coal mine opened in 1855 and closed down in 1974. It’s now a place for graffiti artists to practice their stuff, and a permanent reminder of the demise of one of the great industries of the North.

The Colliery from the path.

Whilst wandering around I came across a young chap and his paint cans, of course taking his photo would not have been OK but he let me take a picture of what he had been doing..

  3. Bah, I’m not going to fall in your trick. It’s pretty obvious that you’re the famous graffiti artist “graffitirocking” and you’re just photographing your oeuvre. Just kidding 😉
    So many colors, but curiously my favorite one is the portrait of the bicycle corpse, the way you captured it with the light looks like a sculpture.

    1. Hehe graffitirocking indeed, I have no talent with cans of spray paint I’m afraid, thanks for liking the bicycle corpse, I like that one too.

  6. Some really great shots. I love the vibe of some of these old industrial buildings; for some reason rust and decay is really photogenic. Some nice graffiti too.
