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
Great shot, love the tone, very dark and sad. I love it!
Thank you so much.
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
Awsome image Dave… the old girl really makes it!
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.
you bring a great view to an “every day life” scene… terrific work Dave
Beautiful treatment Dave!!.. excellent..
