ARCHIVE 188 – ON THE MAIN STREET OF PENZANCE (MONO + COLOUR)
October 28, 2015 10 Comments
These two telephone boxes stand beside the road in Penzance’s main street but, because the pavement is raised, it is possible to photograph them straight on, rather than having to look up at them. They are in poor condition and badly in need of attention – but this semi-dereliction makes for a strong photographic subject.
I’ve taken them into mono and restored some of their characteristic colour, and also increased structure to help emphasise their grimy, peeling surfaces.
D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 800 ISO; converted to mono with selective colour restoration and other manipulation in Silver Efex Pro 2.
