Last Sunday I got up very early. I had tickets to see West Side Story with Karen. I do not like to rush so I got to Seattle 3 hours before the show started. I had brought my Nikon FA with the Nikkor 50mm 1:2 Lens attached. After parking the car I loaded the camera with Kentmere 400 and set the ISO to 800. I used shutter priority on the camera, with it set to 1/500th of a second. Karen and I then proceeded to walk the streets for a couple of hours before going for a light lunch.
It was a very bright day and there were lots of people on the street. When I shoot the street I concentrate on individuals and not worry about the scene very much. I get very close and many times I am discovered. Some people during the shot are a bit surprised but afterwards, usually smile.
I developed the film in Rodinal(1:25) for 9 minutes @20C. I scanned the film with the Prime Film XE scanner. The show turned out to be very special, with great music and dancing to highlight the powerful love story.
