The end of the line

I went back to Chinnor over the weekend, the factory has gone, the railway has been tidied up, no doubt because of the expensive new homes that now occupy the landscaped factory site. Catch the moment, it will soon be history. Shot in 2006.

Shame in a way. This is very dramatic.

A very nice capture with great composition John and lovely in b&w. It realy does look like the end of the line and in a way it is quite sad.

Well captured John. Beautiful composition. Such a pity that this railway will soon be history. At least you had the opportunity to capture what will soon be seen as history.

This one stood out from your last page of thumbnails for me, although they're all pretty darn good.

It's probably the symmetry and the mono processing combined that appealed.
