Not enough shoppers or too many carts?
Lens: SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7 Camera: Pentax ME Super Photo Location: Lviv, Ukraine ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F8

Shot on T-Max 100 during my 2015 visit of Ukraine. This is at fairly new hypermarket location which was far from empty, yet had unbelievably long rows of shopping carts, in the distance there is another similar place full of carts.

You did a fine job!

Hope the supermarket has enough to sell once all of these carts are being used to shop!

I would hate to be in the store when all the carts are in use.

The sort of place to avoid before a long weekend! Better than some stores where all the carts are stuck in the parking lot waiting to be dragged by to the store for the next set of customers.

Here in Europe that doesn't happen, one reason is the carts use coins to detach the chain, another may be that parking lots are either small to non existent (in cities) or in larger lots there are multiple drop off points.

We have that too, but there can be return points scattered within the parking lot. And then the carts never get returned to the main store pick up point...

Cool shot - you've isolated a scene that we experience frequently, but pay no attention. You've made it interesting. B&W great choice.

I love the lines. Good on you for getting such good tones from T-Max!

That was at time when I didn't do film development myself (yet), I went to local shop where they also scanned it on Noritsu machine. They were suprised at my B&W film request in modern times but it turned out well and cheap too

I, for one, despise T-Max. No offense; I just hate it. You have to leave it in the fix forever. I go with Ilford.
