7218 Seattle Nikomat 50PAI SFX200 960 copyI buy most of my film at Glazer’s in Seattle. I go up to the refrigerator and look through the glass to see what I want. Most of the time it will be Kodak 400TX. A dependable and great film that is easy to use and develop. But while I am looking I see so many others vying for my attention. Films from Ilford, Fujifilm, Rollei, and others. In my younger days, I was the same with women. There were so many, they were so unique in their own way, how could I stay with just one. More than once when on the phone with one of them I would use the name of someone else I was also interested in. I open the glass door and decide to try something else. This time it is Ilford SFX 200. It has infrared capabilities but only when you use a color filter. I just wanted to see if it was good for street photography without any filters. I used the Nikomat El with the Nikkor-S Auto 50mm 1.4 Lens and developed the film with HC-110(1:31) for 9 minutes @20C.

I saw the final image at Pike’s Place Market. There is a shelf above a trash can and these 5 sandwiches were lined up on it. I do not know if they were left for people who are homeless or for some other reason.
