Kodachrome reversal film 8 ASA had a tremendous brightness range. This morning I was running late and a few more people were around and some light traffic

Spend most of my time with images of yesterday (or before), but enjoy use of the Pentax K3 when possible.

    I imagine that in 1957 all traffic would be light… I was 7 at the time and hardly remember any cars driving around.

  • I and almost all my friends did not use a car to go to work. We travelled by train and tram and waited for connections. Hence the photo while I waited.
