Well, here goes for a bit of post-processing jiggery pokery. The first image is the monochrome processed version, which I thinks adds a bit of drama, sets the mood, and is as I saw the place in my mind’s eye (So, it was a decade ago, but I know what my mind envisaged, OK!)
And this is where it began, a JPEG image taken with a tinpot little 4MB Pentax Optio:
Oh to have seen this place just a year or so before, when no attempts at restoration had been commenced…. The eagle eyed amongst you will have maybe guessed this is the same place that the staircase with the pattern of light from the window came from. (I’ve found another image of that one, a little further away, might publish it.)
I remembered I should have had image shown above somewhere, when I saw a rather similar photograph on a book cover the other day, fittingly entitled ‘The Past’….
Over to Paula’s here for more Black & White Sunday.
