I didn’t realize until after I’d shot this whole roll that my Pentax ME was set to ISO 200. Kodak Tri-X is an ISO 400 film. Fortunately, Tri-X is well known for shrugging its shoulders at most misexposures and returning usable photos anyway. Minimal Photoshoppery took away the haze of overexposure and enhanced the contrast, at the cost of a little shadow detail.
I respect old Packards for what they are, but their styling doesn’t really do anything for me. Their hood ornaments were beautiful, though. Packard had a number of hood ornament designs, like the flying lady from yesterday’s photo, and a whole series of swans. They used this swan in 1936.
