The Past



The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Monochrome Monday - 6th October


Continuing the black and white theme on Monochrome Monday....

This is a more modern photo ( taken 2003 ) and shows an old water pump.

It has become a tourist attraction in Guardamar on the Costa Blanca of Spain and many tourist photos have been snapped ...


I have a near identical sepia photograph on my other Blog  -

I love Gower with a passion - I lived there. Watch mu stuff and you will see Gower everywhere.

Benches are such classic images, espcially in mono. Such a timeless quality.

I looked at your sepia too and I like them both a lot. Looks like a very picturesque place.

I love the contrast of the "old" backdropped by the "new"... As someone else said: "Timeless"...

Interesting shot of the old water pump in front of the modern buildings and electric lights.

This shot could have been taken in 2003 or 1930. It is timeless. BJ
