I had half an hour to burn while Anne was checking out a new (to her) Quilt store in London this morning —- so I walked around the block behind the store - with my camera and 14-42 kit lens.

It has been years since I played around with taking pics using the Art Filters on my Olympus camera, and so I figured it was due time to use them again. The settings for any colour images was Dramatic Tone and for black and whites was Grainy Black and White.

Fortunately there were a couple of walls covered in graffiti and overgrown with vines and leaves that I could scan to find small sections of content. I also noticed an alley wall with strong contrasty shadows from a stair case leading up the side of the factory wall. It was fun

An enjoyable series and such fun, Robert!​

I particularly like this


Was it your intention that the black bands above and below are part of the composition? It works for sure!

Thanks Asher. All were shot as 16x9 format, and I decided to use a square format with black background to accommodate the different orientations.
