Print: Refuge

A couple weeks ago I bought a new lens for my Pentax 6x7, a 45mm f/4 Takumar. It's the widest non-fisheye lens for the 6x7 system and is great for interiors. I decided to test it out inside one of my favorite local abandoned houses in Gurnee, Illinois.

"Refuge" shows a room in the house where I believe questionable activities happen at night. Beer bottles and energy drinks often litter the table here, and I'm sure the grimy double mattress has seen some action. A vacuum tube ironically sits near the doorway.

I used Kodak T-Max 400. The physical print is 13"x9".
