Until quite recently, London was a terrible
place for cycling in. Now, with traffic so
congested and average speeds reduced to
less than they were in the days of the
horse and cart, you're more likely to be
knocked down by a bike than a car in
central London. And until quite recently,
the A23 through Streatham, where we
lived, was a race track to the south. So it's
hardly surprising that the bike here didn't
get used much, and was effectively left to rust picturesquely away under the magnolia.
This was a very old picture shot on something like an Instamatic half-frame camera.
However, on using Perfect Photo Suite to increase the resolution (using fractals) and
converting to a sepia-toned b&w, it now has a certain charm. In order to make the
right-hand side of the frame more interesting than just a dark gate, I have added a
window gobo from Tiffen Dfx, as if a reflection from a sunlit window nearby. This needed
to be angled and tweaked slightly to look natural as it hits the cross-members of the
gate.
