Walking Portsmouth with Duncan Toms – Old Portsmouth & Gunwharf

Duncan has always had a eye for a different angle, and often the obscure. Whilst most people walk straight past an old building, Duncan takes the time to stop and capture it. Sure, some of the imagery is nothing new as far as local content is concerned, but I like the way he finds a new angle, or perspective on the subject. There are places, landmarks & buildings I’ve never noticed myself.

It’s also always good to see people taking a photographic interest in what’s above eye level on the streets. The ‘Memento Mori’ stone carving is incredible.

“Photographs taken around Gunwharf and Old Portsmouth in October. While certain others are shopping I like to wander around the city in the immediate area of Gunwharf. Inside Gunwharf itself are many original dock buildings dating back to the c18. Past the harbour in Old Portsmouth and Spice Island you can still get a feel of the old maritime city in the time of Nelson, with many interesting Georgian buildings, doorways as well as the defences and churches.”

Below is just a small example from Duncans set that can be found over at his Journal www.dtoms.com and also his Flickr.
