A mono conversion of Coffee 'n' Cream previously in my PF.

The image is of the spiral staircase at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, East Sussex.

The pavilion was built by Earl De La Warr when the modern was only just beginning to be the accepted architectural style of social progress. Earl De la Warr, the socialist mayor of Bexhill-on-Sea, drew up a brief for a building simple in design, light in appearance, with large window spaces, sunbathing terraces, a restaurant, a reading room, a multi-purpose entertainments hall: a modernist dream building by the seaside. De La Warr Pavilion was to be the first large scale welded steel-framed building in the UK. The competition announced by Bexhill Corporation attracted 230 entries, and was won by one of the giants of European architecture, a revolutionary and visionary, Erich Mendelsohn - famous for his Einstein Tower in Postdam and his Schoken department store in Stuttgart.

Thanks as always for your time. your comments/thoughts are very welcome - not something I do often - mono's!

I like the mono conversion very much - looks very abstract if you don't know it.

I remember Coffee 'n Cream well, loved the colour and wouldn't have imagined it working in b&w. But this is so cool and sophisticated. Good, creative thinking.

I have gone back and looked at Coffee 'n' Cream.

I feel that for this particular composition / light the colour version is better

I think it is because for B&W there is too much detail in the "dark" area on the left and top outside of the spiral causing a slight distraction from the graphic shapes.

Anyway, what is this trawling back through the archives, have you nothing new for us ? Trust the camera is not in "hospital" Wink

Jeff - no I don't really have anything new to offer, and the weekend was wet and miserable Sad I have hundreds of images in my archives that have yet to see the light of day... I keep them for days such as we've been having recently!

Hopefully will have plenty soon from the W & P show and of course my impending trip/hol's abroad Smile
