All Stop

As one approaches the entrance to the Great Central Railway Booking Hall at Loughborough these two signals peer above the wall of the road bridge over the railway.

The light just seemed to be catching these signals in the right way, particularly against the sky in the background, hence this photograph.

So now it's the weekend once again, they seem to come round very quickly these days. Have a great weekend, back on Monday.

The light is superb - makes the colours rich and glowing. I like the simplicity of the composition.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, I was a bit lucky with the lighting, 10 minutes later it was all dull and grey.

Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage, i must admit to "burning in" the bricks just a little to bring out their colour.
Simply beautiful Brian. The lighting is exceptional!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it was the light for those few moments that caught my eye, 10 minutes later it was all dull and overcast.

It's odd isn't it, something you see every day suddenly catches your eye because of the way it's lit. It works as a picture too smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, I've seen this loads of times and I suppose never really noticed it before, if you know what I mean.
Brings back memories Brian, unfortunately Loughborough is just that bit too far these days.
Brian Walbey: Nice to remind you of the GCR les, I suppose, even with the motorways, it would be quite a long return journey.

Love the colours in this, Brian. The rich red brickwork works well with the colour of the sky.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I must admit to "burning in " the brickwork just a bit.
The rich colors make this a pleasing image.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment, I was lucky that the sunlight bought out the rich colours of the brickwork.

This is a beautiful detail, love it, you did a very good job.
Love the rich RED.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, it was the sun on the bricks that first caught my eye.
I've got a real soft spot for these. Must be all those years playing with the Hornby.
Brian Walbey: Glad I've stirred a memory Ian, I had Triand T.T., do you remember that i wonder?
