Best of Bristol 2019

Bristol: these are some of my personal favourite images from 2019. They mainly feature some of the more mundane and less photographed parts of the city, but that’s the way I like it!

In March I was able to get access to the demolition site of the old Sorting Office to capture the last days of that infamous brutalist landmark / eyesore that stood next to Temple Meads station but had lain derelict for the past 20 years. Over the Easter weekend I did an Instagram takeover for Visit Britsol, which was great fun and pushed me out to parts of the city that I hadn’t explored before.

I also spent quite a few hours of 2019 wandering around South Bristol / Ashton Vale with a camera in hand, mainly during breaks from studying Python which was a big part of my focus for 2019 and is indeed for 2020. Enjoy the pics…
