The Anchor pub is located on an idyllic setting on the edge of the River Cam (Cambridge). The founding member of Pink Floyd Syd Barrett was a regular at the Anchor riverside bar during the sixties and the riverside bar now boasts a lasting tribute to his legacy in the form of a special commissioned mural. I have taken two photos at different moments, a coloured (V1) and a b/w (V2).
Thank you for looking and for your warm comments and votes on my last upload. A special thanks goes to Carol and Lavina for their useful suggestions.SmileSmileSmile

I didn't think it was taken in Greece, Effrossini Grin. I like the colour version best. Carol

A very well-taken street scene. I do prefer the colour version, Effrossinni.

Both are quality images, Effrossini, but if I am to make a choice, it would be the mono. Well done!

Syd certainly added a different dimension to Pink Floyd. Two fine captures, Effrossini.

I prefer V2 for the tighter crop and the fact that the people are looking towards the camera. In V1 they are all walking away

I don't like to compare colour to monochromatic - both have their merits.

I do like the perspective in each of these, and those jagged, broken lines bordering the street are interesting. Here in Texas we paint with a straight brush Smile

I like them both, great captures, but if V2 was mine I would crop just inside of big street sign ( right hand side). Eric.
