Went to Kirkstall Abbey yesterday and was taking photos of the beautiful stonework.
This child appeared from nowhere. She was really enjoying her explorings.
Though think she was as surprised as me when she saw me.

What a contrast between the child and the stonework and it works well. This would look good in mono with or without the child.
