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.

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.
