In honour of leap day, something unique for the blog. A heavily processed piece of street photography.
Normally the images on this site will have had minimal work done in Photoshop. This one’s had a lot done to it.
I’ve been experimenting with stylized, almost pop art interpretations of photos for a project so this is what has happened to this one.
The only Kirkcaldy street with a zed in it that I’ve found with a ceramic sign so far.
An example of the two different typefaces found on Kirkcaldy’s ceramic street signs next to each other in the same street name.
This week’s entry is the second of two Douglas St signs.
This week’s street name I chose because of the nice shadows cast by the bare trees across the wall.
This week’s street name is the only one I’ve found so far with a Q in the street name.
Two unusual things happening at once – someone going for a dip in the Forth on Kirkcaldy beach, and a hovercraft coming into land on Seafield beach.
This strangely attired pair were performing on the High Street in Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Festival last year.
Strangely this particular picture got a huge number of hits (well for me) in a very short time on flickr.
Seemingly this is my fourth ‘most interesting’ photo on flickr. As far as I can tell that particular algorithm yields odd results.
I still like this picture though, so incongruous – this woman sat on her bags in the middle of the pavement.
This weeks street is close to my favourite and very probably the one that laid the seed for the whole project.
A few years back I was doing a lot of walking – on the dole and very broke – and found myself on East Albert Road, except the sign was subtly damaged and I was convinced it was called Last Albert Road. Which instantly became my favourite street name ever, until I was corrected.
Anyway I reckon that’s what got me interested in the ceramic street signs in the first place.
Another old blog entry. This is a tree-lined avenue in the Meadows on the southside of Edinburgh. It’s particularly nice when the cherry trees are in bloom and the pink and white blossom drifts in the air down the path.
