do NoT eNtER

 

odd how the DO NOT ENTER sign was right there in the frame of this photo i captured on black & white film

 

Sometimes I enjoy just photographing the surface because I think it can be as revealing as going to the heart of the matter.

I like how the hi-key processing whitens out (eliminates) the unattractive street, but maintains all other elements.

At least they are headed away from the “Do Not Enter.”

– In reply to: Elaine K

yes, it’s a bride and groom

the image is soft from the film so that’s why you had to squint, i guess : – )

Well they at least seem to be steering clear of the ‘wrong direction’! It’s been years, no — decades, since I’ve used film. I’ve kept only one of my film cameras and often think I should buy some film and simply have a bit of fun with it. Good for you for working with the film — see what magic you’ve created.
