    I’l like to see this in shades of grayed pine and weathered yellow paint. Great shot.

  • Kenneth, thank you for the comment. This is a black and white shot because there was absolutely no color in it except a JPEG artifact. Love the idea of it in color.

    I actually think it looks great in B&W. Very minimalist and carries more impact than if in colour.

  • Cool Maree, you know I prefer black and white. Takes me back to those wonderful movies that let my imagination explode.
