i'd taken this shot during the summer of 2007, also using b&w film and mounting my camera on a tripod, but being younger and stupider, i shot it with the lens wide open. i finally made it back a few weeks ago and properly re-took the shot.

among the things i didn't like about the old shot, which can be seen here, was that i was using a slow film - Kodak Panatomic-X, ASA 32 - and opened my lens wide because i didn't feel like needing to expose the film for 5 minutes to get the shot and also because i didn't feel like dealing with reciprocity. while the film is overexposed, it still scans nicely, but has proven very difficult to get anything else but a flat, low contrast print from the darkroom. also, i shot it rather wide angle and the original post was cropped down.

the new shot posted here was taken using medium format Fuji Acros

The varying factors though with exposure and angle and focus aren't a problem. they all give a different effect to the photo. they give a different image everywhere you look, a different thought, a different mood. we can all dial in and do the "math" and shoot the micro crisp photo. this shot has multiple facets. and at multiple levels. this is a wonderful piece. thank you for sharing it.
