Slush Sold Here

We all have pictures that are in the back of our minds to use at some point in the future, but we don’t quite get round to it.

This picture “Slush Sold Here” was taken on a cold wet Monday morning last September on Blackpool South Pier, for me the telling part is the rain screen on the push chair.  It’s taken from the inside the Pier Diner looking out. The hot Coffee was very welcome. The astute ones amongst you will realise this picture has been flipped horizontally – why would you advertise Slush from inside the Diner?

One of the joys of Lith printing that appeals to me is the other worldly look it gives, quite unlike conventional black and white or toned printing. To me this picture becomes much more interesting once I have taken it through the Lith Process.

A big welcome to all the new followers of my little blog.

    Interesting rendition of the image Andy, although I cannot see the raindrops on the rain screen which I think are lost in the lith process at this size. Was this true lith or some kind of digital ‘magic’. Great interpretation either way.

      Hi Gerry, raindrops – a Lensbaby with a plastic lens at f2, erratic manual focussing and grain the size of golf balls – I’m just glad the text in the sign is readable. That’s the point of a lens like this, the viewer fills in the gaps in the information.

      All my Lith is digital.
