Challenge your camera #3 Industrial

The third week of #challengeyourcamera, this week the challenge theme is #industrial. Ancient or modern we are all close to something manufactured, a factory, a railway, working or abandoned. Take a look around, what can you find that fits the bill? In England we have a great deal of heritage from the Industrial Revolution and these have made fantastic opportunities for photography, often best seen in monochrome and darkened light if indoors. Here’s a few of my own examples which will hopefully inspire you to have a go at the challenge:

The underside of a steam engine, Steam Museum, Swindon, England.
Hammer Mill, Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, Sheffield, England
Circuit breakers, Geevor Tin Mine, Cornwall, England
The ruins of the Wheal Coats tin/copper mine in Cornwall, England, used in many scenes from the Poldark tv programme

  1. Britain has some marvellous industrial heritage. Mills and mines make really interesting photography subjects.

    • Yes, heritage is the right word for it. We have paid many visits to industrial museums mostly in the Midlands and North of England. My first main job when I left school, before I had any sense and went to university, was in a small ironworks ….. noisy, smelly, but very exciting. I worked for British Steel for 13 years! Most of my ancestors were Cornish miners, tin and copper. Recently we travelled 120 miles up to Sheffield just to photograph the last surviving Bessemer Furnace in England, thankfully preserved.

  2. Good challenge, plus I like the way you answered. Love the close-ups in B/W … But there is something about the last photo that captures my attention.
