Hobarts historic Salamanca Place holds a weekly street market on Saturdays. Set amongst beautiful heritage-listed buildings and with Mount Wellington as a backdrop it must be one of the most atmospheric open air markets in Australia. Popular with locals and tourists alike, no visit to Hobart is complete without a trip to Salamanca Market.
I found this scene in February 2012. This particular photograph was taken with my Rolleiflex 2.8C twin lens reflex. The 2.8C model dates from circa 1955 and was a watershed model for Frank and Heidecke as it was the first Rolleiflex to be fitted with the legendary five element f/2.8 80mm Carl Zeiss Planar or Schneider Xenotar lenses of spectacular quality. My own example is fitted with the Xenotar f/2.8 taking lens. A 0.35 Tele Rolleinar (a Rolleinar is a Rollei factory close focus dioptre lens) was fitted for this shot.
The image was recorded on Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100 black and white roll film in 6×6 format. I processed the film in ILFORD ID-11 developer at 1:3 ratio for 17 minutes at 20C.
