When in Lincoln, I came across the fabulous work of a local photographer Jane Wright in one of the gallery shops along Steep Street.
Jane is a fine art photographer based in Lincoln and she captures themes around found items, urban desolation, city details and wild landscapes. In part of her artistic statement she states what is important to her “beauty, discovery, serendipity, signs that something’s happened”.
The following photograph “Still Together” captures two dilapidated matching chairs which made me think of a old married couple who have stayed together through thick and thin.
It was one of my favourite and so I picked up a greetings card with the image on it and will be framing it for display.
Still Together by Jane Wright
Walking around Lincoln it is hard to miss the cobbled, nostalgic Steep Street. The street certainly lives up to its name, being a 1 in 7 gradient, which meant a bit of huffing and puffing as we slowly made our way up. At least there were plenty of shop windows to stragetically stop in front of and peer into.
Steep Street is full of independent shops, tea rooms and pubs as well as historic buildings with the top of the hill leading to the entrance of the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral.
Half way up the hill was this lovely little Antiques Centre which caught my attention with all these vintage signs outside the shop.
I couldn’t walk past with out capturing this typical railway sign from Midlands Railway (1899).
