1232 : Greyscale Market Warmth

HALIFAX BOROUGH MARKET : ALAN BURNETT (Circa 1966)

So long ago. It seemed like a black and white world. There would have been colours I suppose, but those colours would have looked all wrong, like they did in early technicolour movies. Northern markets were greyscale places, but there was a warmth to them which came from more than the overhead electric heaters.

Great shot! It definitely catches the spirit of the place.

The black and white gives a great mood and simplifies things into shapes of many values. We have a station that now plays old movies and I had never thought about the old tech-color thing but some of the movies were just all the wrong color but were very colorful.
