31218 Cinestill BWXX F4 40 Seattle 470

When I was around 10 years old I lived in Los Angeles. I lived in a small house with 5 brothers and 1 sister. My parents were overwhelmed. I remember my father always telling me “Why don’t you just disappear?” I had no superpower to do that, so I did the next best thing and went outside and joined the kids on the street. When I moved to Seattle it was easy to be invisible. Walk anywhere downtown and people walk right by and take no notice of you. They are on their phones, some with headsets, and living in their own small secure world. I could move around them with my camera and capture them with no problem. Lately, though that has changed. More people are starting to see me. I do not know if this is a good thing or not. Perhaps I am becoming a bit too bold in my body language.

Both images were shot with a Nikon F4 with the Voigtlander 40mm F2 Lens. The top image is Cinestill  BWXX developed in HC-110 for 6 minutes @20C. (1:31) The bottom image is Kodak Tmax P3200 developed in HC-110 for 10 minutes and 30 seconds @20C. (1:31)
