    Be still my beating heart! As you're possibly aware I have quite a penchant for this style of structural form. Mind you, I'm busting to have a crack at making more of the contrast of the grid of cabling that flies overhead.

    Thanks
    Yes the canopy of wires warrants more prominence.

    Here is another one that needs better conditions for colour, but I don't mind the B+W treatment version.

    It's probably just me but I see the colour as an irrelevant distraction. On the other hand the B& W is an absolute cracker and the power of the structure is enhaced by the light and minimises the adversity of the white-out of the sky.
    Curiously, given the colour of the structure, B&W film would benefit from a 25 Red filter to lighten the walls and darken the sky. Hopefully, weather permitting, my escape from all football related annoyance will be provided by a road trip tomorrow.
