This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. The first of the posts in this series was of a council building in Manchester. I always thought I should give then and now photographs a go. However what I have started to notice is that I have been doing Then and Now photographs unintentionally over the years and have been taking photographs of the same thing or place from the same view or perspective years apart. Now this has come to my attention I have started to intentionally take photographs of the same place.
Over the years I have taken this view at Bristol Airport quite a few times, both unintentionally and now intentionally.
I was flying to Glasgow in November 2023, so I took my usual photograph.
I was flying to Amsterdam in October 2023 so I took a photograph from the window next to the balcony at the departures lounge. The balcony itself was closed, it was rather foggy.
When travelling from Bristol Airport in August 2023 I took this photograph from the balcony at the departures lounge.
When I was at Bristol Airport on the 14th November 2022, I intentionally took a photograph from the same vantage point.
I had taken a similar picture in February 2017.
I took this view of Bristol Airport from the departures lounge on an early morning in August 2016.
