Sharp, fine grain film with an ISO of 400 but the capability of a much faster film. I shot photos in a low light setting in downtown Philadelphia and Kodak T-Max film yielded me some amazing results.
Usually, the only black and white film I use is Ilford HP5, but I was out taking pictures in Philadelphia at night and ran out of film and simply was not ready to stop taking pictures. I went to Ritz Camera and a nice old man sold me the only black and white film they had, Kodak T-Max. I Shot a roll with my Holga and when I developed the photos myself I was impressed.
The grain quality was very fine and the images were crystal clear. I have shot hundreds of rolls of different Ilford films including: Delta, HP5, and HP4 , but I was most satisfied with the quality of the Kodak T-Max prints.

Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
