Atlanta
Lens: M28 Camera: Pentax MX Photo Location: Atlanta, GA ISO: 400 
Posted By: shiner, 10-14-2011, 03:49 AM

I scanned some negatives from the early 90's, maybe 92-94-ish (memory cell failure), shot from the roof of a building in downtown Atlanta and I apparently had my trusty MX along- thought I'd share a couple even though they are a bit over-exposed and stuff.







Oh, and a super-grainy shot with the Fujifilm blimp (neat only because it was shot with Fuji film, lol).

Hi!

I think the first photograph is the best. It is sharp and with deep DOF. I like it . It is always interesting to see photographs from older times. It is history.

The exposure in that first shot is what drew me in. It's like the entire street(s) is (are) illuminated. Normally, I'm used to seeing reds and "whites" (halogen bulbs...) streak along from cars in a long exposure, but the streets in this shot (from the cars, street lamps, and your exposure) just glow. Very nice.

Thanks, Mike! That first one was the best one on the roll (only about 9 shots were from the building), I think.
