Location, Location, Location... and Glorious Muted Colour

Ths subdued tones in Losey's "The Go Between" recreate a world long gone.

When this film came out in 1971 I was bewitched.

So many contemporary photos seem garish, even brash,
compared with the colour tones I was used to in the past.

"The Red Pony" was on TV yesterday and the colours were picture-book perfect.

This is the closest I have come recently to recreating a similar effect.

Taken in Yorkshire, not Norfolk, but somehow the countryside seems right.
