For our HANON x Diadora V7000 “Inter City” collaboration the other month, and with it being inspired by rail travel, I dragged Emma out one night to explore the dark and dingey tunnels and car parks around Aberdeen’s train station.
I must admit, I never used to spend much time in the city centre, and I wasn’t exactly the biggest fan of it in all it’s greyness, but after working in the city centre for the last 10 months or so, I’ve become extremely fond of the city and all grey it has to offer!

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.
