Shadow variations

A brief spell of bright sunshine means shadows - and chance to play a little. This is one of the original Victorian fire escapes on the main mill building of the Victoria Mills complex, now converted into apartments.

I like it in mono but it also makes an interesting colour study, with the blue tones over-saturated.


  1. In this case I think the B/W works best, the shadow seems to lose importance when such bright colour is introduced. The architect of this monumental building must be very pleased that people are photographing the fire escape!

  2. Both are beautiful! I love shadows.

  3. I think the black and white take works best for me.

  4. I'm kind of mixed. I usually prefer color, but maybe the black and white is more dramatic this time.
