Metz at night

I have, recently, bought a couple of photography books, one in particular is filled with excellent work by a Hungarian photographer, Brassai.
His work ‘Paris de nuit’ is sublime, especially when you consider that they were all taken in the late 1920s and early 1930s on very low ISO film/ plates and using a 9 x 12 cm Voigtländer Bergheil, mounted on a wooden tripod.
Go check his work out and enjoy, it’s quite wonderful.

Chilly, but, at least not the persistent rain that we’ve had for (seemingly) weeks now.
We are so lucky to live in such a photogenic city; I have a feeling there may well be some more night time black and whites shot quite soon.
Last week was quiet, work wise, which, actually isn’t such a bad thing just before Christmas. I seriously needed a bit of r &amp; r.
All shot with a Rolleicord V using Ilford Delta 100 (pushed one stop to 200) and developed in Ilford ID11.
