Camera: Pentax Spotmatic. Don Valley Brickworks.

Do I know what a surge bin is? Not necessarily. Nonetheless, it sounds quite important, nay, central to the process of making bricks, so obviously it must be documented, so that future generations will not languish in a dark age that is devoid of brickworking and other masonic activities.

On a more serious note, I've found that I quite enjoy using colour film under such circumstances. Most of these shots required long exposures, ranging from a second to 5 seconds. Not only does it occassionally give you distorted, unexpected colours, it can also give you the somewhat subdued colours that I find fascinating, as exhibited in this shot.
