Clearcutting

In 2008, New England suffered one of the worst ice storms in recent memory. Thousands of beautiful trees were destroyed. Power was lost for days, and in some towns, weeks. Many trees are still in the process of being cut and cleared, almost three years after it happened.

Stumbled across this one in Institute Park, at Worcester Polytechnical Institute, in Worcester, MA. A great test for the Argus C3 MatchMatic. The glass is so incredibly sharp that no additional post processing sharpening was needed here. it likely would have over sharpened it. The film here was Fujicolor 200, which is likely one stop too fast for the camera. These are slow cameras, with a fastest shutter speed of 1/300th of a second. Then again, I have yet to brave 36 exposure Ektar 100 in an Argus, which I much prefer to use in the Nikon’s. But thrilled with the results.
