Print: Neighborhood

Here is my final darkroom print from my trip to the Northfield trailer park. This kid's toy was flipped over in an empty trailer lot. I used an aperture of f2.8 to somewhat isolate the subject from the background, but not enough so that you can't tell it's in a trailer park. The clouds even showed up without me using a yellow filter! I left the composition un-cropped for this print, and even showed a little bit of the sprocket holes for sex appeal. Once again, I used my Exakta VX with a 58mm lens on Ilford HP5+ film. The original print is roughly 7x10 inches.

Thanks for looking!
