Actually relics from World War 2. 5ft cubes of concrete that were part of the coastal defenses at Bamburgh on the North East coast of England. Not sure these would have been enough to stop a Panzer!

I guess someone decided they needed brightening up.

  1. Very nice! Great work done here, both your wonderful capture, and the paint work really lightened up!

      Thanks. I shot this in colour as well and I’ll post that one when I get the roll developed (for comparison!). The dice are red (a bit faded) with white spots and the sky was clear blue. I used a deep orange filter to enhance the contrast. I think the contrast in the colour should show really well too.
