Seagulls in AberdeenI am off work today, so am having a couple of days in cold, dark and intermittently snowy Aberdeen to catch up with friends.

This afternoon was set aside for a bit of wandering around with my camera.

And there were some great opportunities – the imposing granite buildings looking strong against the grey, angry sky, and the graceful spires across the city contrasting with the brutal tower blocks. Aberdeen’s gothic beauty on days like this is a goldmine for black and white photography.

And yes, you’ve guessed it. I forgot to pack my bloody camera.

Ah well. Let me console myself by showing off my existing Aberdeen set on Flickr. The one above is perhaps one of my favourites because of its soft tone, simple composition and melancholic atmosphere.
