10 amazing Bristol pictures

Welcome to the unique world of Hannahbella photography. Hannah brings a brilliant style of traditional photography mixed with composite images. We spoke to her about Bristol and took a look at 10 of the best Bristol pictures from Hannahbella photography.

On Bristol:

“I am Based in greenbank, Easton, but have lived in Bristol for 12 years and lived in many different areas, I love Bristol. I love the art and music, and the friendly people, and the sense of fun! Constantly something new and exciting to see or experience, it’s such a great city!”

On photography:

“I have only been a photographer for a couple of years, beginning as a hobby which morphed into an addiction. I started with macro shots then began to look up and at the moon and started to dabble in astrophotography. Finally I then bought a Canon 1100d and set off on travels around New Zealand, getting blown away by the landscapes and stars and playing around with settings, and grinning ear to ear when the milky way first appeared on the camera screen!”

“From then (last spring) I’ve thrown myself into it, exploring the best of Bristol, secret places, derelict places, and well known places, we have a very photogenic city, full of history, nature, beautiful architecture. Spoilt rotten here! I’m still developing my style, I like loads of different things, nature, architecture I just like to look for things people don’t usually see or notice. I am a daydreamer!”

Hannabella Photography’s Best Bristol Photos

1. The Barrow Gurney abandoned psychiatric hospital

The Barrow Gurney abandoned psychiatric hospital

 “A bit of urban exploration of a derelict mental health hospital. A very creepy place, which has now been demolished.

The hospital was first built between 1934-1937 with the first patients being admitted in 1938. The buildings were used to treat serious mental health disorders, and had been referred to as being a very haunted colony of buildings.
It indeed had an incredibly eerie feeling to it, as the wind chased up behind you in decayed corridors, you would turn a corner to find disturbing artworks and graffiti, the old surgery room and chair, old belongings of patients.

I explored a lot of the hospital, a beautiful building surrounded by woodland and wild flowers, so sad how it had been left in such a state. I believe the site is now the early stages of a nursing home development.”

2. Clifton Suspension Bridge

“Ever wonder what it would be like if we didn’t have any light pollution?

This is in my series of ‘Bristol turn out your lights, for starry nights’.

With Bristol now being the green capital I wondered what it would be like if we didn’t have any light pollution, and began photographing a series of bristol landmarks under clear starry skies (all photos are my own, stacked in photoshop). Combining two long exposures, or daytime and night time photos for interesting effect, the Clifton Suspension Bridge was the first in this series.”

3. Cabot Tower Bristol

“A beautiful tower that can be found between Clifton and Hotwells just off Park street. A magnificent grade 2 listed building with jaw dropping views across the city and river.

The 105 feet high tower was built in the 1890s to commemorate the 400th anniversary of John Cabot’s voyage to Newfoundland in America in 1497. He set sail in the beautiful ship The Matthew in search of a new route to Asia.”

4. Wills Memorial Building

5. The Big Yellow House

6.  Bristol Dye Works

“A few months ago, I was granted permission to Brooks Dye Works, what a treat!
After 12 years of wanting to see inside those gates, I finally got a look! And with my camera!
A beautiful run down place, built in the 1870s, survived WWII, but sadly has an uncertain future. You can see more from my Brooks Dye Works photoshoot on my Flickr page.

7. Eastville Park

“Beautiful Babbling Bristol Brook
Found a part of my local park I hadn’t been in before and found this lovely brook. Love Bristol for its lovely green spaces.”

8. The beauty of the Bristol M32

“This was taken when the M32 turned 40 years old. I wanted to capture it’s birthday and find new view points.”

9. Thunder and Lightning in Bristol

 “This was to show how green our city is and how close we are to nature.”
