Saw this parked up out of the corner of my eye in saturated colour as I was walking through Back Beach. It was the tiger stripes on the canoe that got the camera (Canon S95 pocket job) out, but I'm happy with all the lovely whispering textures I wasn't conscious of at the time. And the wonky voyeuristic framing. I used the SilverEffects Pro II 000 Neutral filter to get the B&W then pumped the Neutral/black a little bit in Photoshop Selective Colour afterwards.
Could have gone a bit more grainy and luminous etc, but after a lot of fucking around in search of sexy monochrome it's become clear to me that a successful subject should A: volunteer and B: cooperate without massive technical intervention. Don't get trapped in all that bad-photographer pushing shit uphill after the fact, like I do. It is what it is.
