Anchor Close

Anchor Close


It’s strange how a small detail can capture the character of a place: and how you can manage to take a photo in the middle of a busy city without a single person in the scene.

    • Hi Mara, and thanks for your comment. This shot was taken just after midday on a Monday when you would expect people to be out and about at lunch time. Come to think about it, at 6am on a Sunday the only place you’d find me would be in bed!

  1. What a wonderful image and so many elements. Stone, metal, glass, brick … love it (even if I don’t know what Anchor Close means)

    • Thanks very much LB. A close is a narrow passageway or right of way between buildings, and this one includes a flight of steps. They mostly have names that link them to former functions like markets or industry. Maybe they once made anchors hereabouts.
