We spotted the Welney Water Tower as sunset was approaching on the evening of our day of "Fen Hunting". This beautiful architectural structure stands in a field behind the Church of St Mary the Virgin. I headed into the field full of chest high stinging nettles to photograph from different angles. On emerging we met the couple who owned the land who now in their eighties, she has lived there since the age of two in a bungalow which prior to them belonged to her grandfather. In 1935 he sold the ten foot by ten foot land to the water board to build the now disused tower.
I photographed a number of Water Towers that day, each quite a different architectural style, it really is interesting thinking about their historical significance. In this I am photographing, handholding my Nikon FM3.
Although we always try to send out your order as quickly as possible the artwork might take two weeks to make. If you require it urgently for a gift or interior design project get in touch before placing your order and we will advise on availability and options.
Conventionally all our framed work is dry-mounted onto aluminium. This ensures a very flat image surface in the short and the long term. The prints are matted (window mounted) using a museum quality 100% cotton rag board especially manufactured to be compatible with the C-type archival Kodak photographic paper Richard uses. He makes the prints in his own dark room. The print sizes are taken from traditional photographic paper sizes. Traditionally with photographic prints they are signed and numbered on the back, they can be signed on the front of the mount by request.
