Summer Storm

Monochrome Monday during an unseasonal downpour in June 1968. Somewhere a little north of Preston, a Black Five 4-6-0 speeds past our intrepid photographer (there with permission I hasten to add). His Rolleiflex loaded with uprated Ilford HP4 b&w film capturing this gritty image inspired by celebrated ‘new wave’ photographer Colin Gifford. In just a couple months scenes like this would be gone forever, with many photographers giving up photographing railways or the more wealthy heading to foreign climes to capture working steam. 


A huge thanks to those who help keep these posts regular
