Minox IIIS

Great Burgers, New York City (1996)

"The juxtaposition of the statue of the kissing couple in the foreground and fast food place sign behind it was just irresistible. I wish I could claim that this was a spontaneous shot, but I actually looked at this image every time I passed the statue for a few weeks before I finally took the picture. It was a cloudy day in a deep Seventh Avenue canyon and the statue was dark stone, hence the slow exposure for an outdoor shot."

1956 Minox IIIS with Agfapan 100 film, exposure probably 1/50. Developed in Microdol-X 1:3 and printed at 4x5" on Luminos Flexicon VCF RC paper with a #4 filter using a 1952 Omega D3 enlarger with a 50mm EL-Nikkor lens. Scanned to PCX file at 200dpi, then scaled back to 4x5" and converted to JPEG with minor contrast/brightness corrections.
