Times Sq – 42 St

During my trip to New York this past fall, my wife and I hit the city with a bunch of old film and manual focus cameras. Here are a couple snaps from dropping down into the Times Sq – 42 St subway platform.

I shot this with the massive Vivitar 285 mounted on the hotshoe of my Minolta X700 – Portra 400. This setup probably weights 20 lbs in total. Focusing it on the move, let alone walking down stairs into a dark Subway is no easy task. I really like the first capture here, at full resolution the scans are crazy sharp.
