B&W rules OK! Especially with shots like this, where mono adds both age and atmosphere. These things always conjure up images of miners, young and old alike, donning their helmets and taking that short walk to the pit head lift. Like 8

Cheers, Herb

Thanks Herb It's a long gone industry in Barnsley, and this is the only relic left so I thought B&W was the right finish for it. Cheers Stuart
