Leigh ... by night Phone Box, Leigh, Night 
1/27  Welcome to Leigh (December 2007)

This photo was taken at 4am and was the result of two less than ideal circumstances. Firstly, my car was being fixed, so photos had to be taken within walking distance of home. Secondly, I couldn't sleep.

I decided to walk up the road with my camera and found that sitting by the side of a country road at night during long exposures is a peaceful experience; I also learnt that the most interesting photos are often found on one's doorstep, although one may have to look hard to find them.

The scene has changed a little since this photo was taken: a garden has been planted in front of the 'Welcome to Leigh' sign.
