Favourite pictures – The accordion player
This is one of those pictures which starts out as a colour picture which doesn’t really stand out, but once converted to black & white makes more of an impact.
I took this whilst we were on holiday in Durham last year with a Pentax K5 and Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom. We were walking through the town and I saw this man playing and instinctively raised the camera and snapped without any real thought about composition. Later I cropped it in Lightroom and converted it to black & white, and I think that is when it has more impact.
I added a little grain in Lightroom to give it a film look.
