A great photo challenge from Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Made of Wood

Black and White Sunday: Before and After

It is interesting to see the same photo in black and white and in colour. What is your favourite?

In days gone by, I am sure someone has a black and white photo of the old horse  drawn trolley bus.

It has been lovingly restored and you can still take a short ride when it is available.

I took these two photos this afternoon thinking of the Before and After photo challenge. The Iris is one of my favourites that I was given from my elderly neighbour before he went into care

The colours are stunning
