Maybe monochrome

I've been working this evening on black and white versions of my photographs from last weekend. I've been a bit ambivalent about this - I think that the colours of old Belfast buildings have a certain charm and blend together in a pleasing palette of warm stone and brick colours, with some excellent splashes of bright yellow.

But I think black and white might work too. It strips the images down to lines and textures, light and shade. You can see some patterns more clearly. Some elements become more abstract. The impression is at once older and more modern. I'll keep editing and see what happens.
