Aliens stored in stasis.

A lone person sitting at one of the tables would have made this shot even more lonely. You certainly captured the mood of the place. Good in B&W.

Thanks for dropping by. Appreciate you comments.

I developed a roll of FP4+ this morning. ISO 250. I use Diafine for all my developing. It's not a push process. Diafine is a two bath developer so the shadows continue to develop after the developer in the highlights is exhausted. The negs scan very well because they are on the low contrast side, an easy fix with curves once scanned.

Tri-X can go two stops because it's an older emulsion that soaks up more of the "A" solution. Neat stuff and it lasts forever. Just pour it back into the stock solution bottle when you're done until next time.

Wonderful shot. There is something very poignant about the state of emptiness.

How stark and unique and perfect for b&w. Good one, Mojo.

Satisfying repetitive patterns and I like the lighting.

Health and happiness to you as we travel into 2010.

What an odd place! It makes for a creepy, lonely shot.

That I like. Very nice shot. A little bit creepy,but I love it.

Great shot! Very somber place on what I assume is a day too cold to sit outside.
