I like to explore the backs of buildings, the less formal face if you will. Perhaps the equivalent of a casual portrait as opposed to a formal one. The building’s architect lets his guard down and what we see is often more interesting.

The light was beautiful with a clear blue sky and I had my camera, a Pentax 6X7 with 90mm lens loaded with my favorite film, Ilford FP4Plus, which I rated at ISO 100. I developed the film in PMK which was fantastic for rendering delicate high values without blocking up, and printed the negative on Ilford paper. I scanned the print on a an inexpensive Epson 4 in one printer and used Snapseed to remove the dust spots.

  1. Excellent image Steven. The Pentax 6 x 7 is a big boy, the exact opposite of the mirrorless cameras everyone desires these days. The mirror slap on the Pentax must sound like a car door closing.
