This shot shows the rear of the former EADT and Ipswich Star offices, the photo was taken at night when the street is deserted and it continues to be quiet throughout the day but will soon become a hub of activity as building work starts on the new McCarthy and Stone retirement homes.

A lunchtime diner, taking time out from the hustle of the town centre, shared a photo of his warming bowl of tomato soup, the vivid orange contrasting against the backdrop of the vast white cruiser moored at the Waterfront marina.

Ipswich looks like a film set in this Instagram, White Stuff and the neighbouring shops are coated in a shiny layer of moisture following an afternoon shower and it is just waiting for a scene to unfold.

Winter is lingering in this monochrome photo of Christchurch Park, Ipswich. The black and white tones add to the winter chill and the bare branches of the thin trees are a far cry from the lush green scenes around the lake that we can expect to see again in a few short months.

Here is another shot of the Waterfront. There is no need to apply one of Instagram’s low light filters when the sun casts a soft glow like this on the wharf buildings.
