Durham Bulls Athletic Park

8406 scanThe Durham Bulls Athletic Park, home of the Durham Bulls AAA minor league baseball team in Durham, North Carolina. Definitely a homey, old-fashioned baseball experience. Having grown up going to Wrigley Field in Chicago, it reminded me of old good times – except much cleaner! The photo was taken in December of 2015 with a Minolta X-570 35 mm SLR equipped with a 35 mm f/2.8 Minolta MC W.Rokkor-HG 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.
