This building is next to the bus station in Bath and although I've walked past it many times in the past I had never really noticed it until a few weeks ago and thought it would be interesting to shoot for my weekly monochrome.

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Bath -- makes me think of my favorite BBC historic novels, like Persuasion, and that I visited Bath 25 years ago. I remember it's charm. This building also reminds me of our now historic Capitol Records building still in Hollywood. But otherwise, and aside from your great POV and choice of monotone, it looks like a modern prison with the windows covered with bars. :-}

@Joyce: I must admit this is probably the best way to view it, compared to the magnificent architecture to be found in Bath this might be thought of as a bit of an eyesore !

Lena from San Francisco, United States
