Default Public Life Bar, London

Another postcard from London...in this case, lost London. :)

This place used to be an underground public lavatory but a few years ago it had been converted into an underground club complete with cocktail bar and dancefloor...and urinals of course. :)
Now, it has been dug up, filled in and paved over...

Yes, Paul, it's sad to see even a urinal-nightclub or yore disappear! I was immediately impressed by the wonderfully aged colors of yellow and brown in the picture, reminding me of the carousel work with pigment ink and platinum processing by Jim Collum.

Hey Asher, i'm glad you picked up on the colours in the scene. It's my reaction in trying to achieve the look of old colour film with my photographs. It's probably unobtainable but I did like what I got here in the end...:)

I checked out Jim's stuff and I like the 'Carousel' image very much. The ink's he uses has a nice effect on the colour in this shot...
