You're urban b&w shots are great Ralph. Bleak in the extreme but accurate documents of the day. Apologies for not being around lately - know how THAT can be....

A very busy composition of lines with a lot of texture seen in the cracking/flaking paint, metal grill and broken glass. The B&W treatment adds to the aged and weathered look that this has.
