Larry's, Columbus, Ohio, 1986

Blog post about Larry's here.

 

The assignment for photography class was to capture motion. My first attempt was of some folks playing pool, but the instructor walked into class, took a look at our photos for that day, and told us all what a crap job we'd done. The entire class had to do the assignment over.

 

This was my second attempt. Did I carefully reshoot and print the assignment? No. I walked into the darkroom with twenty minutes before the start of class, printed this negative on my one last piece of photo paper, slapped it on a board, and went to class.

 

The instructor, a Larry's regular (of course), raved about it. I still don't know if I could tell you what made this better than the other one, but I'm glad. Now I have a print of a place that I'll always remember.

 

This was taken from the storeroom in back; it had a little ventilation window that I could get to with a ladder. No one noticed me up there taking photos.
