|HP5+, Adox paper, mild sepia tone|
Thursday, 28 December 2017
The staircase in The Mineral Water Hospital, Bath is rather special. Ok so the actual treads are a bit uneven in places (not that suitable for people with mobility issues I guess) but the finials (is that the correct term?) are beautiful - if a little dark in this print:
I had the Pentax ME Super with me this year and I just stuck it on A and shot away in blind trust to Pentax's metering system - in any case, there is no manual metering option. I always rate HP5+ at around 200 anyway but even so, perhaps I should have used the compensation dial by the rewind knob and let even more light in. But the print is a fair reflection of the scene - the wood (mahogany I would guess) is very dark.
