If you’re from Aberdeen then you know of Tunnels – a live music venue which coincidentally enough is in a tunnel which goes underneath Union Street. It’s not exactly the nicest of places, but it’s the route I walk every day when I go from where I park my car to our office, so I’ve gotten a little used to it.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks, you might have heard something about Pokemon being quite a big deal, well, there’s not many of those ol’ Poke Stops where we live and Emma ran out of Poke Balls, so I guess this was an opportunity to grab some shots of the city in the evening, and maybe catch something other than a f*cking Pidgey!
Still trying to make use of those longer summer nights whenever possible, I wanted to park the car at the beach and take a stroll round the harbour and up into the bottom end of the city centre (Emma will tell you it was her idea), so I took the camera and the trusty 24-70mm and off we went.
I guess when I first started this blog over three years ago, it was to be used as a place to post my images of sneakers, and write about sneakers for anyone who cared to spend some time having a look, but since I’ve been working at HANON for the last 9 months or so, I shoot so many pairs of sneakers a day, so for my this blog, sneaker content has been lacking as it’s either been for work or on NB Gallery.
So rather than when I used to head out in the evenings to shoot my recent sneaker pick-ups, or pairs from my collection, that’s taken a bit of a backseat, and instead of focussed on exploring Aberdeen and surrounding areas more in my spare time.
Anyway, there’s one place that’s I’ve spent a considerable amount of time at over the last 9 months because of work, and as lame as it sounds, that’s a car park in the city centre… It offers everything I need to be able to shoot sneakers in any condition, so rather than shooting some sneakers, I took some shots of the car park itself.
