Photographer's Note

Back to some oldies today, there were very few of my latest shots that I was pleased enough with to post. Playing around with old stuff, though, is almost like making something new. I remember when I thought of taking this how irritated a I was that I'd got colour slide film in my camera, and the result, predictably, was too pretty for the subject. Now with the film canner and potoshop I've been able to make the shot I had in mind in the first place. I suppose I could have gone to a lot of trouble in a darkroom, but I never did.

This was the alley behind the shared house I lived in at the time. I remember choosing the zoom to collapse the perspective and accentuate the repitition. I also took one without zoom which didn't work so well. I really had to think before pressing the trigger in those days. A film cost about 1/200 of my annual income.

Tech: Grey scale, curves, a lot of guassian noise. I'll post the orginal as a workshop
