Statue

Squinting statue
Yashica-12
Kodak T-Max 100
2019

Here’s another photo from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. I used to drive over here all the time when testing new-to-me old cameras. There’s all sorts of interesting scenes to photograph here, and it was five minutes from my old house. When I had some business not too far from here the other day I made sure to bring my Yashica-12 along, as I was finishing up a roll of T-Max 100 I’d spooled inside.

I have no idea who this statuesque fellow is, but I’ve always wondered what he’s squinting at.

I developed this at home in Rodinal, at 1+50 dilution. My bathroom was a perfect 68 degrees so I didn’t have to adjust developing time for temperature.

  1. Would St. Paul be too obvious of a guess? The book in one hand and the chain hanging from the other would certainly not be disqualifying. But I have misidentified statues like this before.

  2. analogphotobug says:

    I have to concur that it is St Paul himself. I’m Episcopalian so I can tell you that there is always a statue of the Church Namesake somewhere if it is an individual Saint.
