Photographers are drawn to things that are broken, collapsing, or otherwise decaying like vultures to a carcass. There’s something compelling about observing the irregular, unpredictable process of something slowly coming apart as a result of the inexorable forces of nature. With that in mind, here is a short photo essay on an old hotel I explored recently.
I used two cameras: one of my Leica IIIcs mounting the Nikon L35AF lens I hacked in Leica Thread Mount, and my newly-acquired Zeiss Super Ikonta C 530/2. I was happy with the results from both, though I do want to go back and shoot more medium format there. Film was Ilford FP4+, my favorite B&W emulsion these days, developed as usual in Caffenol.
