Armstrongs & Bulldogs

It’s Monochrome Monday again, and because the colour meter isn’t topped up until Tuesday morning, and because of excessive colour during the week prior, it usually runs out on Sunday night resulting in Monday’s monochrome post. 

The morning service from Templecombe arrives at Combwich, the almost overhead midsummer midday sun creating a contrasty scene. Such lighting suits black and white well, for it’s all about strong shapes, light and dark more than with colour, but of course with photography there are no rules, unless you wear scratchy tweed underwear or are a camera club competition judge. 

Good old ‘Armstrong’ 44417 of Templecombe shed is on the train today, it deputising for the more regular Midland 0-4-4 tank, Ivatt 2-6-2 tank engine or Midland ‘Bulldog’ Class 3 engine, the SDJR loco men engine liking their locomotive nicknames. And of course there are the swans….


Colour is expensive, please help top up the colour meter
