I thought I'd better upload a colour photo just to relieve the mono monotony. It'll look quite good once I've uploaded a few more monos - a splash of colour in the middle of the page :)

A very early morning view looking over towards Turnchapel, taken from where indicated at Cattedown Wharves.

I went to your gallery and said 'hey, colour!' I love the monochrome, but this lovely photo enhances all those around it.

Thank-you, most kind George. I think it's gonna be quite nice to see it migrate down the page as I upload more... :)

Wow! An explosion of color did greet me as I went to your collection after having been absent for a while. This is a beauty of a sunset that probably didn't lend itself as well in b+w. That's good...I'm a color man at this stage of my growth so a grain of salt will be needed. :) Regards, Tom

Hey Tomlight, thanks :) - I was out on a shoot for the Urban Ugliness series I'm doing and this pretty scene popped up - I just couldn't resist it :) Besides working on a colour shot has 'reset' my eyes - they were getting a little fuzzy with all the mono work - lol!

Thanks Neim :)

Greetings from the UK!

Mark It is a lovely change to see a colour shot from you. But don't think anyone could possibly get bored with your mono's. All your shots are wonderful!

Thanks for your encouragement and kind words Palmina & Mari :) - and working on a colour shot really helped to "reset" my eyes for the next batch of monos ;)
