The Acropolis of Athens on Tmax 400

Even before we arrived, I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to get from these shots, taken on the Acropolis and also in Athens’ new museum.

Contrast, grain and moody skies were the intention, and though the Rolleiflex’s orange filter didn’t punch as much as a red might have, I was pretty pleased with the results.

Rodinal, while a bit too grainy for 35mm works nicely with Tmax, and the only regret was not taking along some Tri-X too.
