MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 1 #11

Faces of London

Moving into the third week of this presentation of original monochrome photography I present this picture taken while I was working in London in the 1970's.

My office was in Lambeth, a short walk from Westminster, and this was taken from behind one of the statues outside what was then called County Hall. I believe the building is now called something else and has a different use.

(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.)

This is definitely a unique way to frame the clock, Brian. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, and it's all one exposure, Photoshop didn't exist in those days.

Were the photos in good condition after that amount of time or did the require some repair work, because they appear remarkbly well preserved.
Brian Walbey: They were all mounted on thick card for my Camera Club Zed and then I've kept them flat in boxes over the years. When I came to scan them they were the same as all those years ago. Thanks for your interest, I hope you will enjoy the rest, up until March in fact.

Lovely framing, Brian, though the tower looks a little crooked.
