All this week I’m sharing single-subject photo series I’ve made.

The very first series I made was of an office building in which I used to work. It was just like any other office building anywhere. But it was the one I walked into every day, and I often had an old camera with me, so I shot it frequently.

I was very happy working here until the big company bought us and ruined everything.

    Once again I’ll go for the tourist double exposure as my favorite. What a way to cut your film processing costs by half :)

    Been there done that on the small company / big company thing. My employer still does that, buy a small and highly profitable company, intending to bring the technology to a worldwide market, find that bureaucratic big company structure renders it unprofitable, let it wither and cut it a few years later. Rinse and repeat, I guess the ones that work out pay for the ones that don’t.

    • I hated that Tourist camera! Half of my exposures came out double. That might have been more user error than camera error though…

      What you describe is exactly what happened to the company in the anonymous office building pictured.

    “I was very happy working here until the big company bought us and ruined everything.” A common, sad, American story. I’ve been there.

    After looking at your ‘wreck’s’ sign, shed, and now this series – I like Fujicolor 200 best.

    I love this! I’m finding myself in the same boat, shooting things around my current office building when testing recently acquired cameras. Like you, I’m a big fan of Fuji C200, sad that I can’t get it at Walmart anymore.

    I’m surprised at the Argus C3 shot, but… when they work they are sharp and clear, however wrestling them into submission isn’t always an easy task
