I must have walked past this former shop hundreds of times, and never really looked at it before. It’s close by to where we live and for the twelve years I’ve been there this shop has always been closed.
What I like about this shot is the contrast between the angularity of the railings and the softness of the scrollwork decoration on the door. I have no idea what the shop sold, and I guess there’s no way of finding out now, but I did think it was an interesting shot.
And nothing much was done to this shot other than an increase in contrast and some fairly rigourous sharpening to bring out the detail in the railings.
