This is again Kodachrome 8 ASA film. On some occasions, film processed in Australia showed a degree of ‘Reticulation’ in the highlight areas of the image. Digital freaks would see this as complete tragedy, but you have to enlarge this image to see the effect in the shiny footpath. It has never bothered me as I saw it as the film equivalent of surface cracking with time of a painted image. It seldom determined whether the picture was good or not. Enjoy the image. This was about 5.30 pm on a workday, not a weekend. Shops had only just shut.

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

    I see that even back in ’57, they had those new fangled parking meters. I was 13 then, a sweet little boy who never did anything naughty.

  • Thanks for your interest.
