Two from the Jefferson Memorial
Lens: 55mm f/4 SMC Pentax 6x7 Camera: Pentax 67 Photo Location: Washington DC ISO: 125 Shutter Speed: 1s

Here are two night scenes of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC, using a Pentax 67 with Kodak Verichrome Pan; I didn't use a tripod, but placed the camera directly on the steps with about a 1-second exposure. The second shot is a significant crop.

Thanks for looking!

Best regards, Allan

That second shot shows just how massive those pillars are. Nice.

The first image has an almost ghostly feel about, well done.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! By placing the camera directly on the steps, any vibration from the shutter was eliminated. All the best, Allan

i particularly like that first shot Allan - nice tones on the marble columns, and contrast against the night sky.

Verichrome Pan? I haven't seen that for many decades! Where did you find it?

Hi Lynn, thanks! When Verichrome Pan was discontinued in 2002, I bought three bricks worth; since then I've amassed three more over time through the online auction site, and that's what I'm down to now. It's still my favorite b&w film, having absolutely wonderful tonality.
