So the other day I went over to my usual lab to get the rest of my shots developed from the other weekend
. I had been shooting some 160 speed film in my Yashica Mat, and I must have forgot to reset the meter when I put in a new roll. So I ended up with a roll of 400 shot at 160. Well, it turns out Korner Kolor can't pull, but they did tell me that Photo 123 over on Charles Street might be able to take care of it. So I left most of my films over at Korner and then headed over to 123 to see if they could try and salvage my mistake.
Well, it was a tad confusing and I think the lady at 123 had a bit of a different idea of the definitions of pull and push processing than I did. But in the end, I left the film with them and I'll find out tomorrow how it went. So fingers crossed!
While I was in the area, I decided to check out a few of the alleys behind some of the buildings, and I found this really cool machine abandoned in one of them. I'm not quite sure what it is, if someone can enlighten me, feel free to do so. I decided to do a little photographic study of the mystery machine to kill some time before I had to head back to Korner for my pickups. The rest of the shots can be found over at the b-list. This is also my entry for the latest Photo Friday
I turned up the levels and saturation a bit on this shot to really bring out the rust on the dial. You can see the difference between this shot for example, and the similar "Number 5" shot in the gallery. Some times minor changes can make for a striking difference. This, as well as the others in the gallery were all shot in AP mode at 2.6, 200 ISO, with the meter in spot mode.
