Ladbroke Grove for Portobello Road by 

It’s love.

With regard to the black and white selective darkening : you might call this rather heavy-handed editing, but if you saw some of the weird and jarring coloured clothing the various people were wearing, you’d understand why. That it was taken at noon with the most glaring overhead sunlight pretty much explains the rest.

That’s the technical aspect, anyway. This human ‘love’ condition I hear so much about I have much less of an explanation for.

But there it is, apparently.

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).

    very well done, i dont think the processing is to ‘heavy-handed’ and it really helps draw the viewer to the couple in the center. They make a super focal point and the whole shot tells a story – well done. cheers
