I have spent a lot of time with Black and White film recently so I thought that it was time to show some of the digital stuff that I took on my trip round onto the Island.
First off here are a couple of panoramas that I made. These involve taking multiple photos and rotating the camera, hopefully, along the same plane. These are then put into Adobe Photoshop and knitted together.
First up is a panorama of the whole of the Orwell Quay side of the Wet Dock.
Secondly is a panorama of our apartment complex at Orwell Quay.
This could be the last you see of the complex for a long while as it is due to be wrapped in plastic prior to the cladding being updated!
OK, so next we have a nice little image of one of my favourite cars – a Caterham Seven. This one stands out being in bright yellow.
Next, we are a bit further along by Wherry Quay near to the “Bistro On The Quay”.
My next shot is from the Island across to the Customs House – which is the offices of Associated British Ports (ABP) – the owners of the Port of Ipswich.
The Thames barge “Victor” is in its normal berth but, unusually, has its masts dropped.
Here is a shot of the apartment complex at the end of the Wet Dock – at St. Peter’s wharf. Here you can see what a sorry state “The Mill” is in. Maybe, someday, when it comes out of administration it will be refurbished and tidied up. The Winerack really shows it up as that is a splendid building.
Lastly, I am including an image of one of the heritage cranes that are down at the lock end of the Island. This picture shows what a sorry state these cranes are in. I can see it happening. No-one will repaint them so they will continue to rust until ABP decides that they are a hazard and, due to lack of maintenance, they will be taken down. I am not sure what can be done to stop this process.
Don’t forget, if you like the blog you can subscribe and be told when there are any new entries. Lastly, why not check out my photo blog?
