These photos of goalposts from around the UK are beautifulMichael Kirkham, 39, a former roofer and photographer, has spent the last couple of years travelling around the UK, taking photos of goalposts.All of the goalposts he photographed are different, but they evoke a strong feeling from childhood. They also tell a story about the change of Britain's urban areas.“When you look at the project as a whole, you start to see a pattern of life around the whole UK,” he tells me, enjoying a pint in a local Liverpool pub.Michael's project is called Urban Goals and the pun isn’t accidental.“Some of the goals I’ve shot are 30 years old. Some are older. That makes me think about the generations of kids that have grown up playing there and how their life goals might have changed over that time.”We think they look great anyway and, to be honest, we can't wait to get out and have a game of 'heads and volleys'…"This goal is the inspiration behind the project. It’s onJermyn Street, in Granby. I used to go see a mate of mine down the road from there. I’d see it every other day. I got thinking about it and I’d already taken a couple of pictures of it over the years, but then I started to think about this premise of urban goals."
We used to do the cricket wickets all the time. Then we wet the tennis ball before we bowled so there was no doubt if you got bowled or not.Geez i miss those days.
