Stanley in Accrington

Accrington, Lancashire on a wet Tuesday afternoon.  Stanley rushes home to get out of the rain.

Finish the story yourself.

If you like pictures that need the viewer to complete the story I thoroughly recommend the work of Susan Burnstine see

She has interestingly used homemade lenses to get a variety of soft focus effects.

Why not check out other interesting photographers on my Blogroll at the bottom of the page?

Those of you following my blog for a while will know I spent a few days in Blackpool in September. This shot comes from a detour to the wet cobbled back alleys of Accrington.

Not IR this time, a Lensbaby on an expensive body focussed on the foreground just to leave the shape of Stanley. Lith process in Lightroom 3.

For my overseas readers – the town of Accrington has a football team called Accrington Stanley – Stanly coming from the name of the company the majority of the players worked for when the club was formed in the 1890’s.

    Fantastic shot and processing. I agree, Susan’s work is outstanding. Well worth a look for anyone who doesn’t know her.
