With the combination of the disposable camera and the empty streets, you've cultivated quite the post-apocalyptic look! There is something compelling about these shots - it would be great to see this style used on the centre of a really well known city, on a quiet weekend. Very scary.

Looks like there are some handsome Victorian buildings in your town - what's it like living there?

Where does a name like "Barrow in Furness" come from? How did it get that name?

Late response But I have some new pictures!

@ Bedhead: It's an okay place I get. Its not got many impressive Victorian places,well not least on a ratio compared to boring old brick ones.
@ matt: I have no idea.

I took these all from the Cemetery with my shiny new digital from christmas!

A view of Blackcombe.

You have a knack for creating some ethereal images, both with the disposable and with the shiny new digital. They're intriguing to look at.
