The Hell With Perfection — Freedom for Photography!

Alley walkway - Taylor street Reprise

I like shooting the same place over and over; becoming familiar with the area, the lights, and the scenes. This particular time that I reprise Taylor street, I used an extremely rare Imation Scotch Chrome 400 ISO expired in 1999 and sacrifice my LC-A:( It was nearly 0 °F (-18 °C) and my hand were freezing along with the camera battery and the delicate mechanics of the LC-A. I finish the roll of film as quickly as possible; a blur there a blur here. I don't care what's on the film, I just want to be warm. The resulting photographs convey a certain urgency while maintaining my usual style. The LC-A died shortly after this shoot in the cold :( She now awaits surgery for a faulty shutter.
