Up close... at Kellie's place... 🏰

It's been awhile... more than a year, upon checking. And I've missed posting here.

Nothing like some textures, old buildings, a castle, no less... or something broken, uncompleted... to get the black and white creative juices going.

So, I started playing around some shots taken recently, and thought these came out 'interesting' in b&w.

Shot at Kellie's Castle, Batu Gajah, Perak, Malaysia.

Nothing like patterned repetitions along a long corridor to catch one's attention... and the camera

Crumbling brickwork, plaster and concrete...

The textures of raw brick, crumbling plaster...
highlighted by the strong afternoon sun

Impeccable photographing skill.
This castle is very beautiful. Wish I have can visit there.
Much respect to architects and engineers that brought this into existence.
The long corridor pillars are extremely beautiful.

Great architecture details! I love the textures of the concrete and rocks as well. And just like you did, it comes out marvelous in B&W.
