I was asked what the first image I posted looked like in colour so I thought I would post the original shot for comparison. The reason for converting to mono was that the light wasn’t great on the day so the colours weren’t popping. I know that isn’t always the reason for deciding to convert but I decided to interpret what I felt while standing there. I was thinking about how dirty and noisy these mills were back in the day and how still and silent it was now. The artwork has been there for around fourteen years, there are bits of it not there now and there was a slightly melancholic feel to the scene. Anyway here is the original shot.
