Cathedral in monochrome, Buenos Aires.

As indicated in yesterday’s blog, today the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral interior images get the sepia-toned monochrome treatment. Whilst I like the colour versions, I do think the subject matter lends itself well to the black and white process too. Can’t make up my mind which I prefer.
