Title • rail and wall

I took 44 shots today, transferred 19 of them to Photoshop (on the basis that those thumbnails looked promising), and ended up with only one that I’m happy to use. I don’t know why, but some days things go right – and a good proportion of the shots you take can be used – and other days, despite thinking that you’ve taken some decent shots, you end up with virtually nothing – and it’s really frustrating.

So, this is today’s effort. I was going to colourise it to match my similar recent entry (the one of the wall, windowsill, and light) but it ended up looking far too cold and flat. So this one is colourised, but in a way that’s much more sympathetic to the original than it could have been.

On the whole I’m reasonably pleased with this one, and particularly like the texture of the wall and the rather odd splash of light from a nearby window. I would have preferred a slightly less utilitarian handrail to photograph though ;-)
