Interesting story behind this photo. I have worked on this old abandoned church on several outings and I have used Kodak Portra 160 (NC & VC) as well as Fuji NGH. I found none of my photographs to be very impressive and they did not capture the essence of this fine structure. On this one occasion I happened to pass by with my camera loaded with Kodak Maxim (400)- straight off the shelf of a local quick stop (grocery) store. (I was out of my favorite film and waiting for next order to arrive.) Great sunset and I started shooting. Please don’t ask the details because I did not record them. I believe I was shooting around 1/2000 with my Sigma 28-80 f/3.5-5.6. This is what I got back---Go Figure! I like it, it did not scan very well (a little dark) but maybe I should go back to the store shelf film . There are other photos in this album, but the one that is the subject of my long winded story is the church(sunset).
