Sonatas V-3 (adagio) The Pieces of the Past Fall Away

In this room, tall bed overlooking the outdoors,
triple bunk reaches the sky – heads learn to duck.
Three in a box, close, but each in his space;
a connection not entirely lost until the end.

10714-1 scanThis photo was taken in November of 2016 with a Minolta X-700 35 mm SLR equipped with a 50 mm f/1.7 Minolta MD lens on Ilford FP4+ film. The negative was enlarged optically with a Beseler 23CIIXL enlarger and a 50 mm f/2.8 Schneider Componon-S lens on Ilford Multigrade FB Classic Double Weight Fiber Base silver gelatin photo paper. Processing was done archivally using Kodak chemistry, with a final toning with Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner, treated with hypo clearing agent, and washed in an archival washer.
