The story behind the image
Back in the good old days of film, there were a few, rather short, black-and-white periods for me. 1999, for example. I took a couple black and white films to Ireland in 1999 (Ilford FP4 and HP5) to explore b&w photography further.
Here is a genuine black-and-white image that works for me: Parke’s Castle, County Leitrim. It was being restored in 1999, and the first results of the work were promising. I like this image because black-and-white is much more suitable for a (dark) castle than a nice color shot.
Here’s the same location and time, just shot using color slide film…
