This shot was originally a bit of a throw-away, which is why I’d put the door smack in the middle of the frame. I didn’t think the text would come out too well either, but the Hasselblad kept it pretty sharp.
Now it gets stuck in my head a bit with a Shining kind of loom, and I can just imagine it as a film shot, with a dolly in towards the door which opens by itself and the camera keeps going into the red corridor beyond. It’d probably have some kind of David Lynch industrial rumble on the soundtrack as well.
Anyways, I’m not sure if this is still there. They’re redeveloping the shop you see on the left and a lot of the building it’s part of, and I’m not sure if the walk-up you see in the centre is part of that. The cones and the signs kind of hint at the redevelopment, and I’m surprised you still get the walk-ups in Soho anyway.
