Clarence Dock | 2nd April 2013 – Monochrome Magic
Clarence Dock | 2nd April 2013 – Monochrome Magic, a set on Flickr.
I took a very dear friend to the Leeds General infirmary yesterday. Instead of dropping him off and returning home to wait for his call I decided to explore.
Now I have been here before and there is a set on Flickr to show it but I really love Clarence Dock and the surrounding area. There is so much to see, shapes, lines water, stonework, buildings and people…you name it.
I set out with Monochrome in mind. And I was to stick to it. All images were shot in RAW so they officially were colour but with a conversion in CS6 to get me to the mono stage. One thing that struck me was the lack of people around. It was very very quite and even the Royal Armouries seemed slow.
I slowly wandered around updating images that had been obtained on several occasions and then I had a bit of a “Montage Moment”. I started tapping off images one by one at different angles all with the intention of joining them together. Nothing new here you may say and yes I agree, except I have never created a stitch/montage with so many images. One of them had over 100 base shots to compose it.
Please have a look at this set and see what I managed in under an hour at Clarence Dock
Thanks for looking…
