King of Portland Street

King of Portland Street, originally uploaded by Lancaster Today.

To be fair, the gender is guesswork. This may well be the Queen of Portland Street. If so, my apologies to Her Highness.

  3. Tks for dropping in on RuT. V. nice to see a good use of B&W. Not nearly enough of it on CDP. There's a distinctive style here which makes it refreshing. Doing it day after day for 365 is manageable. After that it can become less than enjoyable. Have a look at Avignon and Menton as long running examples. Each different, and v. popular for their unique qualities. Enjoy yourself!

  4. Thank you Frank (you can be Frank 1 and I'll be Frank 2!) Lois and Chuckeroon. It's great to know you all appreciate the B&W. I'll be keeping the focus mainly on B&W, using colour only when the subject dictates - such as with the strong, deep red on the pillar box.

    I'm glad to hear 365 is manageable. It already feels like quite a challenge!

  7. Great perspective - I've often seen cats on cars but have rarely photographed the scene.

  8. A bit of a fluke actually Hyde, helped by the supremely confidence of this particular cat. He studiously ignored me as I stuck a camera nearly in his face. Cats are a bit haughty like that sometimes, especially king cats!

    Thanks.
