Berlin 72 11

Berlin in 1972 showing the 'wall area' and checkpoint. I was on an 'expenses-paid' trip to photograph the Great Britain Handball Team so had to be in the Stadium most days. GB lost all their matches due to team members 'getting off' with Danish team Girls ! I was more interested in the Photography opportunites ! I found these negs in my darkroom, never scanned before but I have done some 16x12" darkroom Prints of some. I used an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic and the longest lens I had was a 'pre-set' 105mm f2.8 Takumar. Film was bulk loaded Kodak Tri-X developed in the 'Original' Promicrol Formula 1+2. British Sector -- 'Checkpoint Charlie' very scary place !
