This roll of Ilford Delta 100 Professional was exposed exactly a year ago to the date of this article. Another one of those “why didn’t I develop it sooner?” moments. The event was Fitchburg State’s moving in, and the first every day use of the new Hammond Hall, a multi million dollar addition and functional facelift to the Hammond Building, which has long had that 1960’s industrial look. Following the lead of modern academic architecture, this hall makes great use of glass and open spaces, while taking full advantage of the existing structure. Shot with the Nikon FE-2, and 35mm Nikkor F/2.8.
The use of 100 speed film was indeed limiting, but, made for some great contrast.
Brighter scenes really worked out much better. I am guessing the above area will now be where annual student Communications/Media displays, such as “Visions”, will be presented.
There is the new student bookstore, commuter dining halls, study areas adjacent to the library, study areas. The university really has a wonderful new addition. The above shot really highlights the geometry and open feeling of the hall.
