With rainy season now well and truly upon us, I was reminded of a photo from many years ago, taken in an alleyway I still frequent. Back then, I opted for contrasty black and white, and the resultant image can be seen here.
Returning to the original, however, it seemed a shame to miss out on the reds of the lanterns, and of course the reflections — an aspect of the colour version I really like. At the same time, it does miss some of the atmosphere that’s so unique to monochrome. But either way, it’s a photograph I still have a soft spot for, so without any further text, here is version two.
