Shuttered shop 4 : Smiley Face
Both these shutters were "decorated" and I saw them within a few days of each other, so the idea of capturing the views and presenting them together was impossible to resist. The “Fed up” art appeared not long after the referendum and certainly captured my own thoughts on the result. But the smiley face across the other side of the city a week later seemed to provide at least a little optimism. Having seen both, I then had to go back and photograph the original one to make up the pair.
Both images were desaturated and built back up again using various layers, the original colours strengthened and blended together.
