MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 1 #6

Bristol Cathedral

To continue this series of original monochrome pictures this is Bristol Cathedral taken on our one and only visit to that city in the early 1970's. We didn't go inside but more details can be found at http://www.bristol-cathedral.co.uk/

(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions.  This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)

 

Thanks to those who offered advice re ND Graduated Filters, I have now ordered an ND4, hopefully we will all see, in due course, whether it was worth buying.

That bloke with his dog meandering through the shot turns this classic shot turns this into something special, l have been enjoying this series immensely
Brian Walbey: Thanks Zed, this series has a long way to go yet so I hope you keep enjoying it.
Good stuff Brian: this scene is substantially unchanged today
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I suspected not much would have changed in this scene.
City of my birth and our Helen's graduation took place here. If you haven't been to Bristol since the early 70's Brian I recommend a return visit.

Happy filtering!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, the nearest I have been to Bristol for years is charging past on the M5, subject to traffic jams near Gordano Services.
Very nice shot Brian. The place has not changed since!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, Chris said it is still much the same.

Good photograph, Brian, what with the foreground stuff.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, the foreground jst seemed to called out to be included if memory serves me correct.

I can't say that I know where Bristol Cathedral (other than Bristol of course!). Looks to be a fine building, though, and good capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, we never went inside so I have no idea what it is like.
Impressive building, decent composition, I wonder if it looks like that now or has progress ruined the view.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Les, Chris and one or two others have said this scene still remains very much the same.
