                 I: The Magician

***

The rules?

Congress Street, Free Street, Middle Street, Exchange Street.

The image and its reverse in the same frame. Reflections count.

That’s it. Two rules. Most fun I’ve had with the camera since Havana.

All images here (and throughout this website) are scanned silver gelatin prints. My kit: Mamiya c220 camera. Luna-Pro F light meter. Tri-X 120 Kodak film. Doc Martens (short or tall, depending on season). Ilford Multigrade Glossy paper. And the darkroom.
