Pipe Dreams

There’s a manufacturer of drainage pipes very near where Lexington, Kentucky was “born” on Frankfort Pike. I always loved all the possibilities with the shapes, especially with a 17mm lens. Normally a curse, I love how the left-most cylinder is slightly warped from the wide-angle lens.

Trying out a newly purchased Canon FTb (new). Already have an FT, the biggest difference being automatic aperture (FD lenses) instead of stop-down metering (FL lenses). Both cameras are very similar otherwise, the little brother to the F-1. Mine came as a very clean model, with everything that worked. After measuring the shutter speeds with a tester, I found only the top speeds are a little sluggish. The plastic counter window has come off and lodged against the counter wheel. So I needed to run a roll through it before I take the top off and try to flush the gears with naphtha and graphite.

Shot with a 17mm Canon FD on Ilford Delta 100, developed in Perceptol 1+3.
