My iPhoneography image ‘Gaming’ is a monochrome candid street iPhoneography image captured a short walk from my lifelong home in Lincoln.

This iPhoneography image is captured directly in Hipstamatic with the classic John S Lens and BlacKeys Extra Fine film – one of my choice combinations. It was then cropped and levels adjusted slightly in Snapseed.

Lincoln is regarded as relatively isolated. It is tucked away from most main motorway and rail networks. That said, it is still only roughly 2 hours from London. This relative isolation from the big conurbations makes Lincoln an important administrative hub for what is primarily regarded as an agricultural county albeit with a rich industrial history.

Lincoln is also a popular tourist destination thanks to it’s Roman and medieval heritage. In recent years the growing reputation and footprint of Lincoln’s still young University has seen Lincoln’s population grow. A more cosmopolitan feel has developed as more and more bars, restaurants and hotels have opened.

Lincoln’s background and the location of my home in Lincoln’s Victorian West End mean that within walking distance I can capture rural landscapes or bustling street scenes.

I take almost all my images within walking distance of my home. On this occasion I found myself in Lincoln’s uphill Historic quarter. The image itself was captured on Steep Hill, Lincoln – named Britain’s best street. It is a steep cobbled climb linking downhill Lincoln City Centre with uphill historic Lincoln.

“Contrived photo shoots and intricately designed set-ups have never interested me, rather it is the uncertainty of street photography that continues to stimulate. The idea that I can leave the house one morning and come home at the end of the day with a photo that will be with me forever constantly drives and excites me.” Jesse Marlow

    great photograph…love the curves of the curbs against the straight line of the cobblestone. Except for the kid on his game-boy(?) the photo could have been taken centuries ago..
