Crosspool – as you’ve never seen it before

An exiled former resident has posted some remarkable pictures of Crosspool online.

In a blog post, the photographer says:

The light was awful, the editing is equally bad; it’s far, far from being a great photo. But I was struck by the fact that despite living here for 17 years, walking these same streets day in, day out, one quick flight with the Mavic and I saw a view of the place that I had never ever seen before.

I love that it gives the impression that the A57 is some near-Parisian tree-lined boulevard, and that my childhood suburb is perched on a cliff overlooking the City Centre. Neither of these things are true, of course, but looking at this here, they could be.

There are further photos from the same shoot on the photographer’s Flickr account.
