This is good. I really like the crumbling top of the window cavity...typical of colonial structures.
I like the detail you have captured with the warm, worn stucco!
Definately got a lived in look but homely feel as well
lovely black and white!!! great subject matter, nicely framed, and i love how there seems to be a slight, ever so slight mist over the scene, looks like you love what you do smile

I like how the one section is open showing the panes. Your image is so soft and I like the choice of greyscale.

Belle série N&b, pour mieux souligner l'esprit Colonial de ces édifices.
Excellent framing and great B&W processing to bring out the contrasts and soft tones. Like the patterns in the windows and doors, fascinating capture.
perfect framing, love this shot!

Thanks for sharing these great shots of Kolkata!
Textural bliss as the old school fittings and fixtures mingle with the degredation in the walls. Mono enhances those textures perfectly.

I like this in B&W, Charles, but now I'm wondering what color the shutters and window frame are! smile And is that one pane totally broken?

Hello, a beautiful series of these colonial remnants, this one seems to neglect. Good day.

Love the texture of the wall, nice shot!
I shall return the compliment by declaring that this is one of my favourite's of yours. Those shutters are fabulous.
I really love this colonial design!
Very nicely captured and converted.

lovely B/W
Nice compo and textures.
I imagine the actual hues will be delightfully washed out. I like the simplicity of the weathered window and shutters and the soft tones you have given us.

Yet a beautiful achievement, magnificent taken view, good day.
Great in B/W, it shows the textures of the walls more.

Nicely done, Charles. Good composition with the window being off centre.
It does look neglected..but a good image in the B&W Charles.

Nice series. Works really well in B&W.
They certainly look to be of quite an age Charles.

cool black and white! I too love to photograph windows and wall structureswink
The texturews in this shot a very vivid. The b/w processing suits the photo well and seems to add age to it.

Like the processing which has given you such a nice range of tones. Nice detail in this fine composition.
great mono smile
Lovel the slightly dilapidated look of it!
I look forward to the next!
It certainly is colonial, although the quality of carpentry reveals that it is oriented.
This is great photo art - how well you've captured the details!

Btw: Thanks for the visit and nice comment - always great to meet bloggers!

This has a feel of run-down gentility. Like a wealthy planter is about to step out.
