The girl and her dog just walked into the frame after I had spent some time deciding on a location to shoot from. I think it made the photo.
I kept a hint of colour. In the foreground you might be able to make out the railway line, the only one into town. The bridge is serpentine and for pedestrian or cycle traffic. During the UK city of culture year 2013 when the city was the chosen city the bridge was often closed to public traffic and used as the entrance to a park area on the opposite bank.
It would take for ever to outline the buildings, structures and trees like this if done by hand. The transformation is almost magical and takes only one or two seconds.
