Documentary Photography assignment

A series of photos of Dunfermline which I took for a Documentary Photography assignment for my HND Photography college course.


A view towards Nethertown Broad Street, Dunfermline, from what was formerly the end of Woodmill Road, now obliterated by the St. Margaret's Drive dual-carriageway, circa March 2005. Woodmill Viaduct, built by the North British Railway in 1865 and originally carrying a mineral railway connecting Elbowend Junction on the Elgin Railway and Townhill Junction on the former Dunfermline Branch of the Edinburgh & Northern Railway, is on the left.


A view from the foot of the New Row, Dunfermline, beneath an arch of Woodmill Viaduct, towards Bothwell Street, circa March 2005.

A south-eastward view from the east end of Nethertown Broad Street, Dunfermline, towards Woodmill Viaduct, circa March 2005.


A southward view from the foot of the New Row, Dunfermline, through an arch of Woodmill Viaduct towards Bothwell Street, circa March 2005.


A north-westward view from Bothwell Street, Dunfermline, towards Woodmill Viaduct, circa March 2005.


A southward view at Bothwell Street, Dunfermline, circa March 2005. Once a typical Scottish urban street with stone-built terraced housing and shops on each side, this ugly road-dominated no-man's-land is a prime example of all that's wrong with modern urban planning, where roads and cars are considered more important than people and houses.


A view from the foot of St. Margaret Street, Dunfermline, towards Moodie Street and Elgin Street beyond, circa March 2005.

An eastward view from the corner of the truncated Bonnar Street and James Street, Dunfermline, circa March 2005. This location has seen considerable further change since then, with the demolition of the huge and extremely ugly multi-storey car-park and its replacement by an extension of the Kingsgate shopping centre.

A north-eastward view over the huge roundabout at the top of St. Margaret's Drive, Dunfermline, towards Townhill Road, circa March 2005.


A westward view from the huge roundabout at the top of St. Margaret's Drive, Dunfermline, towards the East Port, circa March 2005.


A northward view towards the huge roundabout at the top of St. Margaret's Drive, Dunfermline, circa March 2005.


A northward view along the truncated Inglis Street, Dunfermline, circa March 2005.

A south-eastward view from Pilmuir Street, Dunfermline, towards Carnegie Drive, circa March 2005. The site of this junction is now occupied by a vast roundabout and traffic-light system, the purpose of which appears to be to slow traffic down even further and make life impossible for pedestrians.


A south-eastward view from the north side of Carnegie Drive, Dunfermline, towards Chapel Street, circa March 2005.

A south-westward view along the East port, Dunfermline, from outside the Carnegie Hall, circa March 2005.


An eastward view along James Street, Dunfermline, circa March 2005.

I don't think it would be unreasonable to say that about 98% of my attempts at photography produce more professional results than in this case! Nevertheless, this is a southward view from Bonnar Street, Dunfermline, towards the New Row, circa March 2005.
