Exotic Bar

January 21

This old slide is dated 1963 but we don’t know where it was taken. The bar is suitably dingy, but welcoming. I love the classic simplicity and exotic nature of the scene. There are many interesting details, like a fridge set into the wall, counter bell, lopsided twin lamps and trophies on the wall. The hand of a patron (off scene) leans on the bar, with his spectacles resting alongside a nice big jug of beer.

The dark areas of the pic were very grainy and needed to be deepened to smooth them out. As a result I had to increase contrast and lighten selected areas. The slide also had some crystal damage.

Before and after. Click for big.
