Street/ 9

An image taken as a quick shot by the tunnels in the area below Waterloo Station in London. I have made it look a tiny bit more grungy than it really is, hopefully not overdone…you be the judge

  1. Grungy enough for me either way Sue, and very colourful too.Takes me back though.
    As you might imagine, Beetley doesn’t have a great deal of street art. None at all in fact, unless you count the Parish Council notice board, and the posters up for a lost cat.
    Best wishes, pete.

    • Thanks, Pete! I must say, street ‘art’ is, of course, plain old graffiti a lot of the time. But I have enjoyed some of the stuff around Shoreditch, Hoxton…some talented people around. I can imagine Beetley would be lacking in such stuff!!

  2. This does look grungy. Think I might give this place a miss if you don’t mind 😉

  3. A really nice image Sue. Not overdone at all! 🙂

  4. I’m really enjoying your street series Sue

  5. It’s a great photo – and I see you keep shooting street art, as you did during the eWorkshop. You must have a great collection by now! I like the grungy processing, it gives the photo a painterly quality.

    • Thank you, Otto! Yes, I have taken a few more street images since the e Workshop, but not as many as all that. I want to get back and take plenty more, but life has had a habit of getting in the way! Late last year was not great, and the weather isn’t’ conducive to standing outside for any length of time at the moment… I’ve been trying to find indoor subjects!

  6. I don’t know what it really looks like, but this is a cool picture.

  7. A really great image, Sue. I think it’s just perfect, but I wouldn’t go there at night. 🙂

  8. Nice capture Sue and I think you’ve got the ‘grunge’ about right. There’s some fascinating streets around the waterloo station area for the photographer 🙂

  9. Very edgy Sue – do you surreptitiously shoot from the hip?

  10. I like it! Good job Sue!! I missed this in London!

    You need to visit the underpass at Sunbury Cross roundabout. The council were always having to clear up the graffiti so hit upon the idea of inviting local ‘artists’ (graffiti ones that is) to decorate the whole of the underpass. There is now not an inch or the original brickwork to be seen and no room for any more graffiti.

  12. I like the grunge and grain, and I wouldn’t mind more, darker darks!

  13. So much graffiti around these days, Sue. I tend to like the prettier stuff 🙂

  14. Been many time at Waterloo station …. missed this every time. Excellent image, just right.
    I love good graffiti and I think there is a place for it. I think this is one of them.

  15. I think the post processing is great
