Almost like footsteps

A few years ago I undertook a short photography project which involved taking images in the streets near where I live – in the course of the shoot, I can’t have ventured much more than a mile from my own front door.  This made selecting and carrying kit pretty simple, but it was a challenge creatively as it required me to think about “my own back yard” in quite a different way.

I started out thinking I knew my neighbourhood really well, but how wrong I was.  Very quickly I was discovering streets I’d never even realised were there, and I was noticing features and details which I’d probably walked past every day for months without giving them a second glance.

Today’s image was one from that shoot – just a pair of drain covers which I’d probably trodden on a hundred times before without knowing it.   Something about their layout makes me think they look like the footprints of some strange creature left behind in the stone…
