  1. The Visit This was unfortunately one of them explores that has lots of potential but somehow just doesn't live up to expectations. See what you guys think anyway The History This old school building was designed by the architects Innocent and Brown and opened in 1875. In 2003 the school was moved to a new, purpose-built building on Andover Street, built on the former St Catherine's RC Primary School site. The original school building is now Grade II listed. It stands in a prominent position on the hillside with great views across the city with plans to convert it into apartments.
  2. My personal collection of photos from one of my favorite UE locations, Pyestock. The place dosen't really need any introduction, located in Fleet (UK) it was a gas turbine development site for over 50 years. The largest site of its kind in the world, the power of the air house allowed Concorde's engines to be tested at 2000 mph. Hope you enjoy.. Gone but not forgotten...
  3. Got to say I loved this place as I think most others also did. So much to see and almost guaranteed to bump into a few people. A perfect place to play with torches and flashes to cast some crazy shadows and experiment a bit. 1 A torch placed under the walway to cast the shadows up over the blast nozzle and another torch inside to light up the rear grill. 2 Me sitting in natural light and torches sitting in the rear right hatches. 3 Torches in the hatches each side of me with flash or torch coming from the camera also. 4 Flash fired wirelessly from deep inside the tunnel to light up the huge sphere 5 Stealing Project Mayhems flash here no need to tell you where it was placed. 6 Deep inside cell 4 with Magpie Tommy. Torch on the ground just out of shot. 7 I cant stand light painting so here I am holding a torch as still as possible for thirty seconds 8 Inside cell 3 in total darkness with the doors closed, I pretended to be Batman holding a torch. 9 Torch placed under the walkway and covered with a mountain dew bottle. 10 Here we have "The Mule" sitting inside the nozzle so the sparks all went behind the outer grills. 11 Here is possibly my favourite image I have taken in Pye. Two torches perfectly placed to cast a symmetrical shadow monster on the ceiling. After removing the torches I thought it may look better in portrait. Could I get them back in the right place? Sadly not. Thanks for looking I hope you enjoy.

  7. Moving on from my previous post here's another school Following the 1870 Education Act, the newly elected Sheffield School Board constructed 39 new schools in the city. Pye Bank School being one of them, designed by the architects Innocent and Brown and constructed in the 'English domestic gothic' style it was opened in 1875 and closed in 2003.
