late night at the rotunda

I was wide awake one night and very bored, so I went down to the university and did a little large format photography. I took a few photos, but these are the ones I kept. I especially like the figures in front of the Rotunda, who had stopped to admire the building just long enough to be captured in the exposure. The second photo is of “The Corner,” the a block of businesses and restaurants that cater to students. I used a 125mm Fuji lens and Kodak T-MAX 100 film. I’m still not entirely sure whether I like the way black and white looks in these conditions, but this is pretty much the only time I have to shoot 4x5 these days, so I’ll have to live with it, I guess.
