the train...

Jun 22, 2020,04:46 AM

I finely got a chance to shoot some b&w film.  For a couple of months non-essential businesses were closed and the film labs were not running... recent weeks the labs reopened, but with a backlog so development times were seven then three work days... a great opportunity to support the local mom & pop camera shop... albeit with extended lab time.

A couple of train shots using Fuji Neopan 100 ver. II... enjoy.

Thanks for looking,

I typically ride the metro to and from the office. Like you, I have not been inside of a metro station or A metro car since the middle of March. These photos are a reminder of that routine — black and white says something about the impersonality of mass t...

Thanks Echi... I am standing on the sidewalk / road crossing just outside the station, leaning ever so carefully over the guard-rail... I think it was an express train at a local station... Casey .

Fortunately I mostly shoot land/city-scapes and can avoid the crowds... it's Tokyo, but there is plenty of green space... You and your family take care... Casey
