This building was once used by the Royal Mail but had been vacated many years ago and became an eyesore on this area of Bristol, as it was left to lie in ruin. The image here shows it under demolition and it will be replaced by a modern building, typical of the re-generation that is currently taking place in this part of the city. It was photographed on a bright early morning after I had viewed the potential many previous mornings as I would drive my wife to work. The intention was to convert it to Black and White and because of the conditions at the time it very much worked in my favour.

Don Hooper is a Bristol, UK, based, multi award winning Wildlife and Landscape Photographer who has moved almost exclusively to Black and White Photography and very much looks at his work as an Art form, endeavouring to create his own style.
