Bus Station Backlight

This was taken last Tuesday afternoon as I wandered around for 30 minutes while the girls were at ballet. The light was spectacular and I ended up taking a whole roll (12 shots) which is pretty unheard of for me 🙂 .

This was taken using the time honoured “I’m waiting for you to walk past but really I am taking your photo” method.

Rolleiflex 2.8 E, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.

    Wow gorgeous capture, I love the lighting the shadows and the model. It all comes together really well! Has a hint of industrial feel to it as well

    • Cheers 🙂 It was one of those rare occasions where I took 2 shots rather than just 1 🙂 I also like the reflection on the ceiling 🙂

    Your next mission Jim, if you decide to accept it, is to stop and ask the girl for a portrait.

    This note will self destruct in five, four, three…….
