Doorway to the Past

[click image to enlarge]

Fort Warren on Georges Island has many stories to tell. The fort is a short ferry ride from Quincy and is open for your exploration and discovery either with a park ranger or on your own. Part of this fort was built by Quincy workers using Quincy granite. Black and white seems to bring out the light and shadow play along with the texture of this slightly eerie scene. Enjoy your Monday everyone and don't forget to visit the home of Monochrome Monday,here for more black and white images.

Brilliant, Slim. You are right about the B&W being the best. But I would say that wouldn't I.

I really like this viewed large, lighting, texture and slightly ghostly figure. Really very good.
