Momentum of Empty Space

Shoreditch High Street Station between trains. Canon EOS 5D mkIII – 24-70mm lens at 32mm. ISO3200 f5.6 at 1/60th. Post processed in Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 – converted to B&W and outline filter applied to give a vaguely pencil drawn effect.

This is my entry for Bren’s Mid-Week Monochrome Challenge and for Leanne’s Monochrome Madness.

This is not an easy challenge to take part in this week – you will need to read Bren’s post to understand what I mean. However, I think we support best by taking part – so here’s my entry…

Hats Off to Barlow

..I’ve taken my cue from Bren’s shot in which the hat was prominent😎👍

Statue of Sir John Betjeman on St. Pancras Station taken with a Fujifilm X100F – ISO1600 f8 at 1/320th

Two E’s in a word – that’s got the brain cell running. All to often I don’t even realise a word has 2 e’s – they sort of like to hide behind the consonants and pretend they’re not there. But I’m sure we’ll come up with something for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge😎👍

Let’s begin with a very old shot of a coach belonging to respected Scottish operator, Hutchison’s of Overton…

Hutchison GSU 10T, JUN80

…It’s one of their ‘Executive’ fleet and it’s an AEC Reliance 😎

Now a shot taken on Monday this week…

The Thames from Battersea Railway Bridge

…It’s a view of the River Thames at Battersea – taken from Battersea Railway Bridge looking towards Battersea Bridge. The building on the right of shot beside St. Mary’s Church is the Montevetro Building – luxury apartments. On a historic note, the Battersea Railway bridge I’ve taken this shot from was known as the Cremorne Bridge.

Preserved – Something maintained in its original or existing state: 35028 ‘Clan Line’…

Finally, some Terraced Houses on Kew Green…

…A timeless view😅
