Monochrome Madness: City

Monochrome Madness, a weekly gallery of black and white images hosted by Australian photographer Leanne Cole. This months theme is City.

Wool Exchange-4

Completed in 1867, the Wool Exchange (the building on the right) is one of Bradford’s many architectural beauties. Used up until the 1960s for trading wool it symbolised the importance and wealth that wool brought to the city. Now repurposed as a Waterstones bookshop, it still retains many of the original details, the addition of the glass wall reflecting the opposite buildings perfectly. The sandstone brickwork of the buildings in the early(ish) morning sun creates a beautiful yellowy glow, so I have included the colour version too.

      1. yes -and the word Cafe (to the lower right) in the color one kind of tugs at me – a little for the inviting feel – but mostly how that blue gives so much interest,

    1. Thanks Mr Fish! Yep, the glass wall is pretty special! Ha! I like your last question! Not as far as I know, but surely we’re all related somehow! 😉
