Another shot from the afternoon I spent in Harrogate. This seemed to me to be from the Victorian era, so decided B&W processing would be suitable (it was green in actual fact, and felt with the grass and trees around it would be a green overload!). I imagine this to have been a shelter of some form and later turned into an ice-cream parlour or a sweet shop. A few metres down the road is a similar shelter in its original state.

    Yes very intereting! If the rafters that protrude past the fascia had ornates curls and the ends of the ridge capping had the same this image could well be a Japanese styled rest house, perhaps more so if the side were concertina sides. Very good tones!

  • A fine looking building. I especially like the solid processing with fine range of tones.
    Excellent work.

  • i like the way the vistorians would even design such basic structures - more than just a box, things also had to be good to look at. nice shot.

  • Nice mono process, with good amounts of detail here.

  • It's tremendous how much went into building this. Nowadays such a structure might be a bland concrete box. Who knows. Photographically, I like the framing and the choice for black and white. Good straight lines with lots of detail.

  • Interesting subject. I imagine you could get loads of detail shots too. Works well in b&w.
