Photographer's Note

Take the L-train

Picture taken in a Rotterdam subway train on the first leg of a day trip to the UK to go shopping for vintage Tannoy loudspeakers. It was the first metro of the day and since it was mid summer the train was almost empty. Riding an empty train is a fascinating xperience – a graphic void traveling thru dark tunnels. This is the first pic of a mini series of the UK trip. I’ll add some more info thru the creation of a travelogue later.

Take the L- train (to Brooklyn) is a track from the Cool, Steady and Easy album of acid jazz outfit Brooklyn Funk Essentials (Dorado, 1995).

PCS tech: slightly cropped, adjusted the levels, contrast saturation and curves differentially; ran the Noiseware plug-in filter on some elements of this ISO 1600 picture – I did not remove all the noise ‘cause I like the things the noise works here, USM-ed , added a frame added and saved for the web.
