ND – Dark, Blue
I like this recent shot…
…of the Ringway Centre that lines the south side of Birmingham’s Smallbrook Queensway. With construction commencing in 1959, this architectural icon is still handsome in a certain light, but wear and tear and the usual weathering and darkening of the originally pristine concrete surface have faded it from previous glory.
In an effort to capture its halcyon days the sepia tone and extra vignetting that I’ve added is an attempt to give it a more classical feel of the time when it was new.
It was also impressive to construct as some of the structure was clearly challenging.
