James, in doorway.img302, with story by harrietsfriend James, in doorway.img302, with story by harrietsfriend
Taken in the late 1960s this portrait is of James, who worked at the pawnshop where most of my used cameras came from.  He presented a formidable appearance but was a good man, even nice if you deserved it.

What I appreciate about these time travel photos, from more than four decades ago, are the details in the pawnshop windows of how customers were treated and what was available for sale.

Most likely taken with a Nikon F with a 50mm F2.0 Nikkor, on Kodak Tri X 135mm film.

Feel free to download, just give me photo credit.

It's a cool old photo, and I like the little write up you've added :)

Is the tri-x naturally that warm? I like that about this pic. :)

Tri X has no tonal style, but does have a grain pattern slightly larger than regular film and back then much more so.  In this case the tones were neutral, but I often would print on a warm tone paper, Agfa Portriga, using LPD warm tone paper developer.    eugene

sometimes it helps, and sometimes you choose another method. when in doubt, go straight, as in this case.
any turtles lately?

No turtles, just my Bonnie & Clyde...I'm surprised I don't photograph them more often :)
