Coventry Evening Telegraph Building (Instameet)

It's been many years since I last visited the Coventry Evening Telegraph building. I must have been about 6 or 7 and went for a reason that I no longer remember. I do still remember how the building looked and despite The Telegraph having long since moved there were still parts that had been preserved just as they were all those years ago.

Admittedly much of the building has suffered the neglect of time but it was still a fascinated place to explore.

I was able to wander the building following a short photography workshop for beginners that I was pleased to provide a lending hand. A handful of my favourite images are below.

Coventry Cathedral

Coventry Cathedral is one of the great architectural highlights in the Midlands, despite that I hadn't actually taken the time to visit for years. I thought I'd try my luck and swing by one weekend on the way home from Birmingham. 

The new structure was designed by British architect Sir Basil Spence in 1950, his design was succesfully selected from over 200 applicants as part of a competition! Who'd have thought. The new cathedral was finally concecrated in 1962 and stands as a symbol of peace and reconcilliation in the city.

Due to the huge windowed entrance the light flooding the building in a spectaular fashion. There was only one solitary figure sat in the pews who became the focus of my short photo story.

Ricoh GR ii - Street Test

I take my Ricoh GR ii with me pretty much everywhere. In fact, I use it so much I decided to sell my Nikon DSLR and all of the lenses. Hopefully it won't work out as a big mistake but I'm looking to bank the money and upgrade to a full frame. For the time being I'll be shooting with film or the Ricoh.

Here I wanted to collate some of my favourite images taken throughout August and September.
