Thanks Theolfa. This is another one scanned from an old negative.

Thanks Billy. While sorting through my negs I am finding lots of shots I forgot I had taken. It's fun!

I was in this area just 5 days ago Keith and I wish I had seen your photo before I left for London! Apart from the fashions, and perhaps the number of tourists, this surely can't have changed that much in the last 27 or so years. Really good work here - very nice in monochrome, it gives such a nice atmosphere :))

Thanks Amelia. I am happy to say this isn't a conversion - it was taken on B&W film (Ilford or Kodak, I forget). I don't think I have been in this spot since the photo was taken.

Next time I'm down there Keith, I'll have a look for this .... I was probably within 5 metres of it on Monday morning! :)))

If you do go looking for it, don't put too much faith in my mapping. I tried to work out logically, from the sign, where it should be and I still have nagging doubts. It is somewhere round there!

Cheers, Keith

Fantastic, Keith! Wow, I really like this one a lot. It is most appealing in black and white. It's a powerful shot with excellent depth and character. I think it speaks well for old film photography! Very well indeed!

Best regards from GA,

Mary Alice

Nicely done Keith.

Happy trails, Bruce

Mary Alice: Many thanks for your great comments. I have to admit I was pleased as Punch to rediscover this old shot, even though I am not 100% comfortable with architectural shots.

Bruce: Welcome to my gallery and thanks for you kind words.

A grand shot! You captured the subjects at just the right place to add depth to the photo and as everyone has mentioned it is perfectly composed & frames.

Thanks again, jf. I have absolutely no memory of taking this shot and I developed the film myself at a camera club. I ran out of time so didn't do any prints (or even contacts), so the negs have been stored unseen ever since.

I love this guy with the cane. Great shot.

skida on November 28, 2009

May thanks, whoelia. I was pleased to rediscover this one.
