A darker rendition of the typical Old Melbourne Gaol scene. This film camera only had a 10 second timer and I was short a cable release for it, so I was attempting to time my shots so other visitors didn’t walk into the frame as the timer counted down – as you can see I had no such luck with this one, but now I quite like the ghostly effect it has given the image, so here it is straight from the camera bar a touch of sharpening.
Shot with a Canon 300v loaded with Ilford SFX 200 and a 17-40mm L lens, then scanned with an Epson V700.
