Anybody notice something different on Guylty.WP.com? The anthracite background was looking a bit too gloomy for my taste, and so I’ve treated myself to a pristine white background. And what better to inaugurate the expanse of the virginal white, than a gallery of contrast-rich b/w images. *Guylty rummages in her archive*
I may have to work on the header image, though… looks slightly out of place on the classy, fresh white.
Forgive me if I am flogging a dead horse, but a few of my pictures have proven quite popular over on Twitter these last few days. You probably have seen them before – it’s the images taken at the European premiere of DOS in Berlin, December 2013. Without going into technical details – I was never too happy with them, bar that *one* image that I made look acceptable using the old trick: When it looks shite, just make it black and white. It never occurred to me to give the other images from the series the same treatment. They are fashionably soft with some edgy grain in them.
Yeah right. They are out of focus and suffer from camera-shake. But in the post-climactic lull after the auctions, I had a little play with them. Encouraged by the Twitter response, I am re-posting them here in the gallery below (click to enlarge). Feel free to use (please credit, though). My pressie to the fandom. I’ve even refrained from sticking a watermark on them 😀 So here is “bum, modesty and the lash”
