The Bike Washers was shot in colour with the M9 / Noctilux combination but to be honest it could have been black and white from the outset, such was the light. I did convert just to accentuate the contrast and strengthen the silhouette effect. I hope it has a film feel about it. The folks wheeling their bikes off the ferry would take them straight to the water’s edge and swash them down with river water before riding off. Carbon fibre mountain bikes they may not be the owners are very proud of them and take good care.
