Strong Colour, Weathered Edges

Day 15: Close-UpAs a contrast to the previous month’s soft focus Photo Challenge, I wanted the opportunity to play with some really strong colour and sharp detail in the June collection. The Estrada 83 film is one of my favourites, with its weathered and water-stained instant film edges that changes with every use; the texture can also be edited. Those water-stained edges match well with the blurred edges of the Anne-Marie lens – also one of my favourites – while the Jolly Rainbo 2X flash negates its bleached vignette.

When I put this gallery together, I chuckled as this statue of Hercules (above) immediately follows my Croatian copy of Tolstoy’s War and Peace, which is illustrated with a picture of the author himself, who could have been a model for the statue!

Check out the complete gallery here.
