Places remembered: Aberdeen

More warmth for the winter…  On the job again, this time in November 1993.  Standing on a pier in Aberdeen, on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island, at the edge of the harbor at night, I was looking at an enormous floating restaurant several hundred yards away, lit up generously with yellow and red lights, and was fascinated by the reflections they caused in the dark water.  I’ve rotated the image 90° counterclockwise for a more abstract effect.

Aberdeen 11-16-93-23Pentax PZ-1, Pentax 100-300 lens at 300, hand-held at f/8 and 1/20 second (I recorded my settings by hand back in those days and still have the notebooks).  The film was an old friend, ScotchChrome 1000, a slide film with outrageously-large grain.  I plan to do a post featuring the unique qualities of this film in the near future.  Stay tuned–and stay warm!

    Beautiful – and the rotation certainly improves it. Adrian
