Poppy's in Liverpool

Recently popped over to Liverpool with the large format camera.(Trying to explain it was a camera and yes you can still get film was fun) The Poppys were a private collection bought from the London Tower exhibition and are now on tour. This is a print taken at night.
Taken on HP5+

Very nice, Diz.
I bet the camera, being lage format, would be difficult to handle in the dark especially with a tripod!  
The detailing in the image is wonderful, enhanced by the monochrome colouring.  
Are there any more shots?

Thanks Martyn. It can be a bit unwieldy at times. The cold wasnt much help either. Heres a couple more.

While I was waiting for it to go dark, I whipped up to Crosby to have a look at the 'Nudy' Iron men. Quite impressive.

Beautiful - love the shot of Mr Gormley's iron man.
I watched his Angel as it was being erected in Gateshead.


Have you any colour shots of the red flow of poppies?

I did some on Velvia slide film. But it will be a short wait until I get enough to make a batch of chemicals.

What fantastic shots Diz,

I agree with YG the detailing on the monochrome's is something else.

Well done mate........I would say well worth the trip to liverpool.
Diz

Thanks Border. The results have been good enough to encourage me to do it again. Though I think I will turn up an hour earlier so a better explanation of how a view camera and film work The Poppy's are visiting Caernarfon Castle later in the year. I think that will make a superb back drop. So a trip is on the cards.

The poppy exhibition is coming to Caernarfon  in October, so we'll be going to see them.  I bought one of the London poppies when it was dismantled.

  Love your photos.

Thanks for the photos.
Caernarfon castle in October sounds good - I was too late to buy a poppy
