Back to Boston – AllSaints Spitalfields Reworked

I’m going back down memory lane this week to my Boston 8/2013 trip and experimenting with images; they will all be monochrome or close to it.  This shop with all of the antique Singer sewing machines in it still grabs my attention; draws me in to find new little bits of the image that I didn’t see before.  When I converted it to B&W I had visions of times past – the 40’s and 50’s.  In this version although you lose the color contrast of the gold printing on the black sewing machines as well as the different shades of brown of the wood blocks they are sitting in, what has been gained are the details of the bricks on the left along with the trim along the upper window which was washed out in the color version as this was taken at night.

I like both versions but the monochrome one still reminds me of a scene from an old Humphrey Bogart or Jimmy Stewart movie.

  1. That’s a cool idea doing this shot in monochrome. There was a similar shop in London where I took photos. It never occurred to me to make it a B&W.

    I like the BW version. Excellent choice.
