  3. Your monochrome Mondays are my favorite. I think I say that every Monday :) I love these old buildings so much...it reminds me of the pics I took in Calcutta side streets last year....

  5. I like seeing people hanging their clothes out of the windows to dry. Many buildings in the US have banned hanging out clothes to dry.

  12. Dramatic black and white view of an old building. I'll bet there is some stunning color on this facade! B&W emphasizes the geometry, for sure!!!

  15. The building looks like it could have been beautiful in the past. The ornate rails and old window panes still show it.

  26. Great monochrome photo - you have sooo many comments - I feel like the last person on earth to comment on it!

  27. Perfect in mono! The textures and shading really pop out! How intriguing!

  28. This is such an interesting idea - and I cannot imagine a city more amenable to daily changing images than Bombay. I mean, Mumbai - I left India when it was still called Bombay and it is very hard to think of it as anything else. Am I being politically incorrect?!!
    Thankyou for these images.
