Default Loughborough - a few snaps

Loughborough, my old uni town and possibly one of the best in the UK and the best if your into any kind of sports. They did stress the crap out of me during my Masters and made me realise how high the bar could be set when.

I hadn't had a chance to visit the town or the Uni for many years, so when the chance came up a few days back I went for it. As a student, I never took any pics of the town or the uni or basically anything else. A damn waste looking back !

A few pics .. . just some random shots of the town and close to where my old digs were... I'm going back to the Uni and hope to see some of my old Prof's if theyre still teaching.

E3 + 14-54 and the 35-100F2.

1. "The Boat"... the bridge where this was taken is less than 5mins from where I used to live.



2. The Canal..




3. Mill Lane



4. Road works



5. Town centre - the old Town hall building always reminded me of something that looked straight out of Mary Poppins.



6. The Odeon - the old cinema



7. Take away



8.



10.



Just a wee taster of the town .. its not big and its definitely looking more run down than during my time but its still a fab place.

Cheers

Harj

Very enjoyable series and also an interesting narrative, Harj.

No matter the town, your urban photography always captures the local flavor, and captures the viewers' attention with interesting compositions.

Hey Steve

Thanks for the comments .. the town is what you'd call an old vintage Englaand.. I don't think its changed much over the last 100 years or more.

Looking back, I'm even more annoyed I didnt do photography earlier as the Peak District National PArk is just a wee drive up the motorway.

Great stuff Harj. I can echo Steven's comments on you photography.

My old teachers are prolly all in the great Uni in the sky by now, the sadistic old buggers...

........very nice Harj.

I enjoy your remarks to your photos which in themselves always tell a story; isn't that a purpose of photography, nicely done?

Nice series Harj. I love this kind of "day in the life" photography. It's almost like being there.
