Rush Hour, Metro Center

Canon Elan 7

20mm f/2.8 USM

Ilford Pan-F Plus


I love metro stations :D


Something caused the final negative to not resolve fine detail and instead to look like a watercolor. I'm not sure if the film was damaged when I bought it, or if something got screwed up during development. I didn't develop this roll myself because I presently don't have any darkroom access. I sent this roll to the excellent people at North Coast Photographic Services to see if they could determine what caused this to happen and (hopefully) if it can be duplicated. I love the effect that this photo got from whatever happened to it.


The reason why you see people on one platform, but just a big blur on the other, is because the train on the left was boarding and the huge crowd turned into a blur during the several second exposure.
