Life in the fast lane – Black and white or colour?
I was out again in the dark in London, on my quest to get some Christmassy photos that I could use for Christmas cards to send to the rellies, I was just adjusting the ISO on my camera and I took this scene of Piccadilly in London, near Green Park tube station and looking towards the Ritz hotel. I caught this man doing the hurried commuter lean – where you lean as far forward as you can without falling over so that you can get ahead of the crowd by a fraction of a second. The difference here though is that there is no crowd to get ahead of and I like the way that he is so far ahead of himself that he’s looking at the other lane of traffic – not at the traffic coming immediately towards him.
Again I can’t decide between the original colour photograph or a black and white treatment. Opinions most welcome.
