Tomato

Shiny and red

The tomato is the edible, often red fruit/berry of the nightshade Solanum lycopersicum, commonly known as a tomato plant. The species originated in the South American Andes and its use as a food originated in Mexico, and spread throughout the world following the Spanish colonization of the Americas.

The word “tomato” comes from the Spanish tomate, which in turn comes from the Nahuatl word tomatotl. It first appeared in print in 1595. A member of the deadly nightshade family, tomatoes were erroneously thought to be poisonous (although the leaves are) by Europeans who were suspicious of their bright, shiny fruit. Native versions were small, like cherry tomatoes, and most likely yellow rather than red. The tomato is native to western South America and Central America

Scott Street Bridge

Iconic and rust-ridden it reaches for the sky

Scott Street Bridge is a double bascule bridge which linked with Jennings Street. The bridge, bridgemasters hut, railings and lamps were Grade II listed in 1994. It has been permanently raised post 1994 as the structure is too weak to carry traffic. Some people in Hull are calling for it to be dismantled (as it is now ‘an eyesore’ and because it points ‘grotesquely skyward’), some people in Hull are idiots. This photograph was taken in 2008.

Lost in imagination

The Trunk

No sniggering

And certainly no snikkering, it is just a trunk, a brick trunk on a wall, at the back of somewhere at the top of a slope, the building used to have a short fat brick chimney but recently that was removed, I don’t know why, everything is so modern these days. Anyway… it would look good on your wall.

Don’t go down that one you will get a wet bum

Princess Elizabeth Playing Fields playground slide after the rain has gone with splashes and smears from 2008 before the park was left to fall into ruin and then be reborn in another corner whilst a whole school/academy was plonked upon the parks remaining and much loved playing fields and sports pitches.

The Corner

Dilapidated industrial beautifulness

On the corner of Westmoreland Steet and Northumberland Avenue concrete has it’s say, someday’s sunsets cloak the dilapidation in a golden sheen… someday’s. I once photographed a pair of shoes beside this building, they were in the road, going the right way – Or I think they were. And is it in fact concrete, is it possibly cement or some form of cladding, do you know, do you? Because I no longer do.
