Union Pacific Yard

Can't sleep. Waiting for the Benadryl to take effect.

 

I shot this last year. It was one of my last night shots before my 8-year stint on the Graveyard shift mercifully ended.

 

Camera: Kodak Commercial 8x10.

Lens: 760mm SK Grimes with Nikkor Glass.

Film: Ilford HP5+ developed in PMK Pyro.

Contact Printed on Kodak P-Max Art grade 3, developed in E72 1:3.

 

I'm making an effort to use up my remaining stock of Kodak paper before it goes bad. The P-Max Art paper has a more obvious texture to it, and it shows up in the scan. The paper was famous for its use for hand-tinting photographs.

 

Speaking of which, I found a whole box of Kodak Panalure RC at a Goodwill store today. I was a bit wary, but it seemed unopened, except for the tape at one end had been removed. The label, which was still intact, sealed the other end of the box, so I took a chance. When I got home, I developed a sheet just to see if it was fogged, and, yes, some fool had opened it and looked in. One edge of it was completely black. Too bad.
