Before the 50mm lens

I am doing a series of photos taken down back alleys in small town America. For the present the photos are from Washington and Oregon, but as I hit the road from time to time I will include more States. So many Main Streets have lovely vintage store fronts, but as you step around the corner a whole new world awaits you. This is where deliveries are made, where employees go out to smoke and where garbage is dumped.

I recently purchased a 50mm lens for my Hasselblad which will make this series much easier to shoot. The photos shown here were with an 80mm lens and my Hasselblad 500 CM. I can’t remember what film I used, but I know it was some form of Ilford 400 and I developed my film at home.
