B308 – YORK FOR THE DAY

Yesterday I had the job of travelling up to York for the day todo a quick shoot, its actually crazy that 2 hours from Bethnal Green, that you can be in the middle of the Yorkshire country side, breathing all that good air. Every time I go to places like York I always think that I could live there and just drive around on a quad bike all day and get muddy, but for some reason I think Ill always live in London or near to the city. I really like to think though that my a country boy at heart, if only i could do my job and live in the middle of no where with my bikes and maybe a few jumps just to keep the local hospital busy.

For a first shoot of the year, it was pretty good and with a really nice team, which makes it all that better. I think my only issue was that even though I knew I would be standing in a muddy field, I still decided that i should wear my new trainers that I brought on Saturday. Well done josh, great one. As I was spending the day in the middle of no  where I wanted to concentrate on taking some landscape photos, I think it would be a crime if I just took some photos on the train and some other kind of qwerky shots.

One thing I would love to know, is why do some hills have big horses and other things carved into the side of them? I saw the big horse shape in the side of a hill and wondered if there was a reason why its there and how does it?

My photos from yesterday are below, I really think I need to go back to York for a mini break and really see what its about. Ive only ever stopped by quickly in York for like 1 or 2 days. Maybe its time I go up there for a bit longer.

  1. Hi Josh.
    There are two conflicting accounts of the creation of The Kilburn White Horse at Sutton Bank.

    One is that it was the creation by a school master and his students, as a project in 1857. The other is that a local businessman/landowner had seen something similar on his travels, and wanted his home town to have a figure to be proud of.
