Sonatas V-12 (andante) The Pieces of the Past Fall Away

The “Fourth” as these stores were known to us.

Drugs, dime store, delicatessen, cleaners.
Just spaces, where now stores have died.

10911-1 scanThis photo was taken in April of 2017 with a Minolta X-570 35 mm SLR equipped with a 50-135 mm f/3.5 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.
