You will probably remember my recent open view from a visit to the Steam engine museum in Medemblik.

Risking an overload of this theme, I felt the subject lends itself for BW too.
So here a few shots converted in BW. I hope you like them.

Great B/W images, Fred.

I like the images more which pretend to be "real" work situations - #1 and #6 - although it's a nice museum, and the choice of perspective in #2 works very well.

Again, #6 is my favorite (as was a very similar image in the color series). This time the vignetting is not as pronounced but it nevertheless stands out for me!

TFS!

I liked the colour set Fred, but I think B&W complements the nostalgic vibe of the ancient steam engines. Magic!

Not an overload at all. Another great take on them in mono!

Many thanks all!

@waldo_posth: I see what you mean with the 'real work'.
However, we were there almost until closure time. I liked the relaxed and satified people, wrapping up the day in #2, 3 and #4.
In #3 I felt the oil can in the front was a real bonus.
