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.
A real character! Great picture!
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
gorgeous shot. gotta love kodak tri x i am thankful it's still rolling
