Dusk in downtown Todmorden

Looking towards the portico of the magnificent Victoria Town Hall in Todmorden, from the grounds of St Mary’s Church. At 10secs per shot, the long exposure captures a lot more variation in colour and detail than I could see at the time.

The Bare Arts Gallery and Beer Shop, Todmorden

The Bare Arts Gallery and Beer Shop, Todmorden

The only licenced nude art gallery in the UK.

Not long after discovering the joys of Bare Arts, an independent outlet purveying fine home-brewed ales and lively nude paintings, I dropped in and took this shot on a typical Friday evening. It perfectly encapsulates the delightfully characteristic mix of people and products which makes it such a wonderful destination. Thanks to Trevor and Kathryn for their hospitality and enthusiasm!
