Concrete and Rubber

Posted 2009.11.16 7.42 in Photography by Stephanie

With all the road work and construction going on around the office, I have been wanting to take some pictures of the giant watermain tubes for a while.

I finally threw some film in my Canonet and went around on Sunday when I figured nobody would be around. Oops – they were working Sunday! I stopped and took some shots anyways though.

There’s something about the big massive roundness of these watermain sections that I find oddly compelling. They are over 2 meters in diameter – big enough to stand in.

Technical Details: Shot with Canonet GIII QL17 using Silvertone ISO 100 aka Agfa APX 100 film. Pushed to ISO 400, processed in T-Max 1:4 for 12 minutes.


  1. You shoulda stood in one and taken a picture – workers be damned!

    Ooops – also found the follow-up button.. my bad.

  2. Stephanie says:

    If I have to work again next weekend, I’ll go back and try and get more pictures. Or not. I don’t know. They were compelling in real life but the pictures don’t really do anything for me.

    What follow-up button?
