For many years, monochrome was the choice of most ordinary people, then along came the all singing and dancing Kodak colour film and B+W became less popular..Yes, colour was all the rage..Yet now, with this wonderful technology at my disposal I extract much pleasure in producing these monochrome images..In particular, these symmetrical shapes, especially in the harsh white reflected light under winter skies, they seem to benefit from the monochrome treatment.

Hanno van Kamer A warm welcome Hanno :)

Many thanks for your kind appraisal and visit...

Symmetrical subjects like this lend themselves to monochrome..
