Lost in Time

Lafatvielle, Creuse 23, France. I thought that this photo might have been taken at any time in the last three hundred years, and possibly earlier, although the little retaining wall is probably not before 1700. This is the last example of the stand developed Shanghai GP3 I'll put up, like the ox cart, it was a little over-exposed, or could that be over-developed? There are no frame markings with GP3, so it's hard to tell. With other films you can easily tell if it's the exposure or developing that is at fault, just by examining the frame numbers; whatever, I chose to let the shadows block up, rather than have the water & sky burn out totally.


Mamiya RB67 ProS, f2.8/90mm Sekor lens, X2 yellow filter. Shanghai GP3@200. Stand developed in Caffenol: Crystalline washing soda (50% water) 20g, Ascorbic acid 5g, Potassium Bromide 0.6g, Instant coffee granules 20g, water to 500ml. 10 gentle inversions, then let stand for 60mins @21C.
