Readers' photos on the theme of industrial
Each week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "industrial" and we begin with this photograph taken by Stuart Reid.
Neil Gallacher: "This was taken at night, when the Mossmorran cracking plant was carrying out a flare off. This glow can be seen for miles around the local Fife area but also lights up the whole plant."
Mathew Bush: "On my way home from work late one foggy summer night, I found that the mist had enveloped the Holden-Leonard Mill in Bennington, Vermont, USA. Built in 1865, the mill was a powerhouse for the regional textiles industry. However, the industry did not survive the Great Depression, and the factory was shuttered. It was restored during the 1980s and once again regained its importance to the community."
Lucrezia Herman: "This is a detail of an aerospace engine displayed in Derby's now-defunct Silk Mill Museum."
Utpal Das: "Inside of a small-scale industry at Calcutta, India."
Jerry Clack: "This photo is from a scanned negative taken in 1984 at Battersea Power Station in London, showing power and strength in an art deco style."
Ian Wylie: "Steam engine Braunton hauls the Blue Bell Explorer train out of London Victoria station and up Grosvenor Bank towards the former Battersea Power Station helped by Black 5 locomotive 44932 at the rear. A spectacular day return trip to the Bluebell Railway in Sussex after the restoration of its link to the main line."
Patrick O'Connor: "An industrial chimney belching white smoke, taken from a speeding Shinkansen, bullet train, as it passed Mount Fuji, Japan."
Jack Henriques: "Steam coming from a chemical works near Frodsham, Cheshire, illuminated by the setting sun."
Rosalind Hill: "The factory's smoke merges into the surroundings of snow and winter and cold."
Bill Reeds: "At the Beamish Museum, County Durham, this printer is demonstrating the Columbian Press, invented circa 1813. It revolutionised printing with its ability to reproduce a full-page print and was still selling 100 years later. The Bald Eagle atop the press was actually a counterweight."
And finally, a photograph by Daniel Furon. The next theme is "masks" and the deadline for your entries is 19 November. If you would like to enter, send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details and terms can be found by following the link below this gallery.
