I went down to Charleston, South Carolina for Thanksgiving, to visit family. I brought a camera and some film for the day after, when I took a nice walk around downtown. These are the photos I took. If you're familiar with the city, you'll see some recognizable places. And then there are the houses and such that caught my eye, for whatever reason.
These are the "leftover" photos from a few of the rolls I shot this past November. There's no particular theme, just scenes or objects that caught my eye. All are from around D.C., and all involve the same combination of camera and film that mark photos in earlier posts.
When I took these photos, I hadn't walked through the sculpture garden at the Hirschorn in more than a year. The first two photos reflect the installations that caught my eye. The final is a shot of the Hirschorn itself, or at least, a part of it.
This is a bit of a profile shot of the National Museum of African American History. I took it shortly after the election, during a long walk on the National Mall. One of these days, I'll take that same walk with a wide-angle lens, so I can get a different perspective on the building. For now, I think this shot shows the scale and beauty of the museum. As usual, I used a 6x7 rangefinder and Kodak Tri-X 400, developed by my lab.
We were leaving a friend's house and I saw this old Volvo in a parking lot. I had my camera and one exposure to spare, so I took a photo. I love the tonality of this show, and there's something about it and the shallow depth of field that gives it a vintage look.
