Historical places visited in black and white

These are two of my favourite local images: one is an art school building that started life as a mill (top) and the other is the centre pier of a harbour.  The centre pier began life as a 19th century addition to a harbour to accommodate a growing fleet of sailing ships that moved people and goods in huge numbers and served a new inland railway terminus.

These two shots were made with a 3 megapixel Canon G1 camera (phones have better cameras today).  These days everyone is racing to higher and higher mega[pixel counts, but if the conditions were just right, the old digitals could render good stuff.
