21.01.15 - Walk This Way

This is one of my favourite night photography spots. I love the composition opportunities, the lights and shadows. I also love the history of this street. 2,000 years ago it was the main route up the hill from the river to the large Roman town of Lindum Colonia. Before that there was an Iron Age settlement and no doubt they walked this way too. Saxons, Vikings, Kings and Queens, armies and common folk have walked this way, and it is impossible not to think of them when you stand here
