I watched the video, trying to remember where each of the images was from. Excellent! A really fab way to join up all the threads and re-evaluate them again…they are certainly worth re-evaluating! I like the dictionary idea, too. “act of forsaking” …hmmm…as my response to a derelict site is always an emotional one first, that resonates.

Impressively done Graham, that’s a class job. Good selection of photos with a good choice of music.

Quite a depressing range of images, but excellent nonetheless.

Totally awesome Graham. You really tell a story of the rotting industrial age with your fantastic images, and the mournful music adds drama to the tale. Well done!

I agree with Iain. An excellent drawing together of various threads, although personally I think the TSS Duke of Lancaster feels a little out of place in the collection.
I also think you have the potential for an exhibition in these photographs. Seeing them together as prints in a sequence would allow yet another, different, evaluation and reveal previously hidden connections. Or perhaps one of the photography magazines might be interested in publishing a selection?
Photographs should be seen, and these deserve a different and perhaps wider audience than web distribution offers.

Excellent video! Love every single shot, the music… a little more about the quarry… this is fantastic… and I’ve also learned a new word today as well. Thanks for sharing Graham! Great effort!
