The free-rider

If you don’t pay your ticket in the metro, there is always a small chance you’ll get caught. It wasn’t the case of this girlthough as she kindly requested help of a underground controller because of a disfunctional gate.  Some would have just jumped over the turnstile (click on picture to enlarge)

    Hello,

    I enjoy your blog very much from here in the US.

    A question: your M8 images have beautiful color … very muted. And almost no « primary » colors (Red, Green, Blue).

    Is this the camera itself, or is it post-processing you do to change the colors?

    Best,
    – John

    Thanks John,

    The muted colors are achieved in post processing through mainly desaturation and emphasizing selected colors. The raw files of the M8 are normal ones and I use Lightroom to open them.
