I Like It When A Girl Can Walk Right By

Painting by FARKFK in Shoreditch car park, London, UK (Viveca Koh)

Something a little different for me, in that it is (a) black and white and (b) not textured!

Mark and I had a photographic wander around Shoreditch in London’s East End on Sunday, specifically looking for street art by some of our favourite artists. Mark had previously seen and photographed this piece by Trans and FARKFK, but I hadn’t seen it before, so armed with our ‘graffiti hotspots’ map that I had created with a bit of research, we headed to this public car park entrance first.

As I have recently downloaded a trial of Silver Efex Pro for black and white conversion, and have been LOVING using it, I have a “B&W head” on at the present time, but equally I feel that this style of processing really suits the urban subject matter.   This one was processed using my old favourite Kodak TMAX 400, which I used to use a lot in my film camera days, as it gives a great contrast and really dark blacks and bright highlights, and I have been very impressed with the results.  There will be plenty more to come over time!

    The piece is actually by Trans and Fark… Trans did the girls face and Fark did the graphics around it. Was at Streetfest a couple of years ago.

    I see you’re having fun with the selective color feature in Silver Efex 2.0, too. Nice framing and processing.
