Fly by night


At night, the sodium streetlights render Brownhills beautiful. A cracking drone image kindly shared by Steve Martin.

Drone whizz, top photographer and former Brownhills lad Steve Martin has been at it again, and sent a remarkable set of images taken of Brownhills as most of us will never have seen the town before – from the air, at night.

Steve uses a professional-level DJI drone and no small amount of skill to photograph familiar places from unusual angles. A few months ago, I featured film and images Steve kindly shared from a daytime flight where he recreated a wonderful 1960s image of Brownhills as it is today.

As you can see, at night Brownhills really does look beautiful.

You can regularly see other examples of Steve’s work on his regular haunt, the popular and fascinating Old photos from Hednesford, Chadsmoor and Cannock group on Facebook,

Steve grew up in Brownhills where his family had the chip shop that used to be on the Lichfield Road, Brownhills for a while, and Steve has great memories of the Lichfield Road area, of which I’m still looking for old images if you know to any, please do get in touch.

Thanks to Steve for a beautiful gallery, and Steve is happy to talk about his work if you’re interested. You can hook up with him on Facebook here.
