APARTMENTS ... the series

I think it's time for a new series ... indirectly, I think i have been exploring the subject of Apartments within "The Unexceptional" series. I find that my eye is drawn to the architecture, form, structure, simplicity and retro feel of some of these old style apartment buildings.

 

After shooting a couple of rolls in the new year, I noticed that I would end up with a few frames from these old apartment buildings I stumbled on in my contact sheets. I looked back through "The Unexceptional" series and realized I have been shooting this sub-series subconsciously for some time.

 

I think I will explore this series in both B&W and colour as the design and colour of these buildings can have a really cool retro feel in many cases.

 

Enough rambling ... this is the first shot in my new "Apartment" series

 

Leica M3 + Summarit 50mm f1.5 + Legacy Pro 400 @ 640 iso + HC-110 B @ 6 1/4 mins (30 sec initial agitation followed by 3 turns on each minute)
