True Grit

Posted by
Stu (From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan) on 18 November 2009 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Black and white are the colours of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.

Great B&W, the reflection and the tension of the narrow space work well together in this composition. This is not so serene. :)

Super shot with those wet reflections, it also has an industrial feel with those big vent pipes. ?
