Back To Burdock

BURDOCK WAY, HALIFAX : January 2018

Mine is probably the Burdock Way Overpass in Halifax, which I first photographed when it was still under construction some fifty years ago. I still return every few months to visit it again, like a sad old artist revisiting a favourite model from times long gone by.
