Now in Vienna there’s ten pretty womenThere’s a shoulder where Death comes to cryThere’s a lobby with nine hundred windowsThere’s a tree where the doves go to dieThere’s a piece that was torn from the morningAnd it hangs in the Gallery of FrostAy, Ay, Ay, Ay

Now in Vienna there’s ten pretty women
There’s a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There’s a lobby with nine hundred windows
There’s a tree where the doves go to die
There’s a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

-Leonard Cohen

Film of choice to shoot through the ’Blad.

I know it sounds like a boring choice, but I shoot mostly B&W with the ‘Blad, so I predominately shoot Ilford HP5 because I know its characteristics and exactly how to process it in my darkroom to get the results I want.

Aaaaaaand now I want to go play cameras.
