This was the first photograph I shot of the series. It was 5pm so the high-street was emptying and people were milling home. Everyone was moving so on a long exposure they all turned to ghosts.
I wanted this image to be all about the spire with the warm sandstone.
Compositionally the spire sits bold and central. It takes centre stage on the street so I wanted it to take centre stage in this image.
