Funny how plans change

I was convinced this morning when I was walking along London’s South Bank to catch a train from Waterloo that there’d either be no photography at all, or that at best the flat light and miserable weather would make it a monochrome morning.  Wrong.  I had time to take a handful of photographs en route and the only ones I liked were in colour!  Shows how well I can picture things beforehand…. A bit of grunge and dramatic contrast has lifted these shots and they turned out to be all about the colour – utterly lifeless in black and white.
