Now I know you think I’m being rude, but I’m not……These shots are of ‘Bumble Hole’, specifically Cobbs Engine House next to the Netherton Canal Tunnel in ‘Bumble Hole’….
I shot them today… in really nasty weather…. and, surprise surprise, they looked utterly crap…..Crap in colour and even crappier in Black and White..Crappity, crappity, crap!
But, I’d promised myself I was going to post new shots today….so I was pretty much stuck with them…..
Hence the title ‘Messing with the Bumble Hole’.
‘Messing’, is of course a technical term for the careful application of finely honed, scientific photographic processing principles, some of which involve years of study, …In this particular case, I tossed a coin and it came up heads so I stripped’em back to Black and White and then randomly daubed in some colour dollops…..
I’m almost pleased with the first, ambivalent on the second, and hate the third (and its nasty fake tilt-shift effect) with a vengeance…..
