Two versions of the same image, from a trip last Sunday to the old municipal dry-docks in the historic part of the Antwerp harbour:

This image is about graphic shapes and textures, and I would normally go for a B&W interpretation. Surprisingly, I actually prefer the colour version! I think it is because the palette is extremely limited, with just golden browns and and a touch of greens, so the colours do not distract, in fact the greens add a little touch of life.

Whether it is due to its age, the regular contact with sea-water or the original consistency, I don't know, but the concrete has a beautiful texture.

The presence of a person to give it scale is done in surrugate by the steps - knowing the size of a human step, we can guess the size of the structure.

It is a seemingly simple, but actually very effective image.
