Colour free zone

Back in film days I often chose to photograph in black & white. Then along came digital and colour became the norm. Colour can distract from the essential texture of an image so I have finally done what many have already done, dedicate a gallery to black & white. I prefer to call it a "colour free zone".

This gallery contains monochrome images from other galleries as well as some unique to this gallery.
