Over the weekend, a request for some photographs included the one seen below — an image I have a real soft spot for, both in regards the end result, and the memories associated with it.
There’s already a monochrome version on these pages — it was part of a photo series from an abandoned school up in the mountains. A wonderfully atmospheric and incredibly intact old structure that can be seen here.
To add to that experience, it’s now almost six years since I took the photograph. Not that long ago, but it’s a period in which personally at least a lot changed, both in good ways and bad, making the slightly surreal peeling back of time feel more significant.
So, in a re-visit of sorts, here is the previously unseen colour version. My initial view was that black and white looked best. Over time that changed to colour. But now I can’t decide either way. The only thing I can be certain of is that I now like the photo more than I did over half a decade ago.
