Defence Image Glitch

As prelude to a larger blog entry coming sometime in the near future which will look at the relationship between geology and defence architecture, I thought I would quickly post some snaps of Torås Fort, Norway taken in August. Actually, these photographs were originally NEF raw files but were partly scrambled by Adobe Bridge as it tries to make sense of images taken in B&W (but which had, for some reason, preserved the colour data). Does not compute…

After a couple very tense minutes, Bridge managed to unscramble the images but it gave me enough time to get these screen shots for their novelty value.

The irony here is that in attempting to remove the colour and concentrate on the formal aspects of the Second World War architecture and the very specific qualities of the local geology, I was blasted by psychedelic colour.
