Through the backstreets of a Yorkshire mining Town by 

The backstreets of Grimethorpe,an old Yorkshire mining town, home of the famous brass band. I was contemplating taking this shot as i wandered back from my lunch, then the old lady walked in front of me and down the street, that made it for me.

    Oh beautiful! I expect to see Billy Eliot dancing around! Lovely muted toning and I like the way my eye wanders up the street.

  • Thankyou for your kind comment, really appreciate it

    excellent dave i like this a lot but feel you should have pushed the old dame more into the centre of the frame.

  • Thanks for the comment, i agree it would have been nice if she had walked down the centre

    A wonderful image. It captures a moment in time, and is a real social document to boot!

    Hi Dave! you nailed this one for me, this is exactly as I remember the St where I lived while my dad worked down the coal mine, I felt as though I had just stepped back in time and nothing has changed since the day I left England. A wonderful capture, the old lady was the perfect addition.
