Up close... at Kellie's place... 🏰

in Black And Whitelast year

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


A little of the exterior
Crumbling brickwork, plaster and concrete...


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