This week’s photo is from a trip to Berlin last November. I really liked the subway and train system and took many pictures. I was a bit disappointed that what I thought had been a colour roll was actually a black and white. Many of the shots just didn’t work in black and white, however this one, with it’s contrasty architecture, really lends itself well to it.
Taken with my Hasselblad xPan, 45mm lens, Kodak Tri-X, developed in D76.
I took this picture on our last day of our 6 month stay in Paris. It’s a picture I’d been planning to take for a long time, in fact I have a similar one I did with my d70. The original was taken on a night time walk with my dad several years ago. He has a great eye for composition, and while the original was taken from the landing of the staircase, this one was taken from platform level. Many of the Metro stations in Paris are unique, and this one is definitely my favourite. I am still sad that I never went to the Arts et Metiers station, but we’ll be back sometime…
Taken with my Hasselblad xpan and Fuji Pro 400H film, handheld.
