Swamp

B&W Film,Photographs — Jordan on October 18, 2009

At the Don Valley Brickworks, a little marshland oasis tucked into the middle of the City of Toronto. I’m not quite sure what to think of this image — part of me is very drawn to it, but part of me finds it very distracting.

Taken with the Rolleiflex on Fuji Acros film, guesstimated exposure, developed in Barry Thornton’s two-bath metol developer.

  2. Curious, the image made me think of Thornton’s ones, then read it ran through his 2-bath formula. Fun coincidence. I think I get what you mean by distracting, you managed to find a very dichotomic composition here… but nonetheless it works!

  3. Stunning. Planar or Xenar?

  4. …and I agree with oscar: very thornton (praise that is).
    Wonderful, very portable camera the rolleiflex is and the 80 is a great focal lenght. xenotar (not xenar) is lovely. funny, the planar is considered more desirable.
