Lovely work, Keith, of this iconic building - some things just never seem to change :))

It looks so good in B&W and is a perfect background for the bridge!!!

Cheers, Amelia

Thanks Amelia. I was very fortunate that the low sun came out after a storm. It was taken on B&W film and I think this is much better than a digital conversion.

This one is all; down to the skill of the photographer ... even better Keith ... congratulations :)

Now you've made me blush, Amelia.

Lovely shot, this scene hasn't changed a bit! Best wishes, Fai

Except maybe for the smoking chimney, Fai. Thanks.

I know the cover you mean, Billy. This is another shot I had forgotten totally.

Cracking stuff, Keith. It feels odd to congratulate a fellow on a photo he took 30 years ago but congratulations anyway on such a good tone. I've read cynics (bad photographers, naturally) say black and white is an excuse not to have to think about the colours, but the tone here is perfect. Black and white is an art in itself.

Those were the days my friend ~

Sorry I missed your comment whoelius - I think my old computer was dying at time, and I agree that B&W film works well on the tones.

Nick - I'm having a Mary Hopkins moment now. :)
