This was one of the last photos I took on the day of the Lord Mayor’s Pageant. The whole scenario of the military marching down the middle of Castle Street had a certain ‘wartime’ feel to it. Help for Heroes is one of the Lord Mayor’s charities and is a very relevant organisation in today’s UK.
As I was walking back to the car I photographed an old rusty roller door (as you do…) and then blended both images together, stripped back the colour to give a grungy war-torn feel to the image. This is in stark contrast to the rest of the images taken that day – they were filled with vibrant colour.
I will post a few of the colourful ones when I get a spare mo!
