Black & White Sunday: Traces of the Past

I had in mind Dunstanburgh castle, But no sign of that old image, so in the hunt I came across this relic from a much more recent past:

  1. An excellent discovery – when garages were garages

  2. Back in the day of the old-fashioned garages. Very cool image, Sue.

  3. I like this a lot in B&W, Sue.

  4. Not in the least like Dunstanburgh, Sue 🙂 🙂

  5. Oh this is so lovely! And the bicycles are the finishing touch!

      I’ve had to scan it from an old print, so I must see if I can get. More detail on the Mac (did

        ….did this on the iPad….

      • Well I like it as it is. So nostalgic. I recall visiting a similar garage not that long ago (1994) up in North Yorkshire where a chap came out to fill up the tank for me and wash my windscreen. And have a natter. So many things have become so impersonal now. Sadly these garages are often found derelict today.

        So many things are impersonal, and we have a rising demographic….we should be emphasising the personal….

  6. Reminds me of stopping for petrol in the west country, on holiday with my parents in the late 1950s.
    The man would come out and pump the petrol, and I would wave at him from the back seat.
    So much nostalgia in one shot. The power of photography.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      I think this might have been in the West Country! Photography can certainly be powerful….and Susan Sontag wrote a whole book on it

  7. Still old and authentic enough. I bet Dunstanburgh will appear when you least expect it, and when it does I so love to see it. This one is a fine black and white shot!
