Black Country Art
I like photographing derelict buildings and Victorian buildings. This is in red and blue brick and is a pump house on the canal in Tipton. The half marathon ran past here on Saturday. It seems a shame to let it decay like this.
I took this from the bridge. I’m curious about the tow path, I didn’t think it ran under the bridge. Last time I was there, narrow boats were going through the locks. As you can see, it was very warm and sunny on Sunday.
This pub has a few benches at the back that overlook the canal. The sun was very bright and there were lots of shadows on Sunday. It made judging the light difficult.
This is a shot of the Barge and Barrel. I was going to photograph Mad O’Rouke’s Pie Factory down the road, but I forgot. Maybe next time…
I also photographed a pump station on the canal and a narrow boat. I used those for my artistic edits and you can see those over on a Zillion Ideas.
