Rescued twice


Primer rescate: De un rollo de Tri-X que tras ser menos utilizado que los otros dos en Teià, se tiró meses y meses metido en una Nikon F2 que a su vez pasó esos meses metida en el armario, excepto para hacer algunos retratos caseros con el recién recibido (entonces) 55/1.2 Noct-Nikkor. Tras ser finalmente revelado, mi cerebro decidió pasar las pocas fotos de aquella noche por alto. Tampoco es de extrañar, porque sólo había dos, y la otra era de un montón de luces borrosas.
Segundo rescate: De haber sido tomada en esas condiciones y con uno de aquellos maravillosos 10.5cm/2.5 Nikkor-P a una velocidad y apertura que permitiera impresionar la película con algo (por mucho Tri-X en Diafine que fuera) y rezándole a Panete para haber acertado el foco y para conservar el poco pulso que me quedaba.

First rescue: From a Tri-X roll that, after being used just partially on that night in Teià, spent months and months into a Nikon F2 which, at the same time, spent those months in the closet, except for some sparse tests of the 55/1.2. After finally developing it, my mind decided to pass on the pics from that night, no wonder, since they were only two and the other one was just a bunch of blurred lights.
Second rescue: From being taken in such conditions and with one of those wonderful 10.5cm/2.5 Nikkor-P teles at a speed and aperture enough to get some detail and mumbling prayers to have nailed focus and just a bit enough of my remaining pulse.

PS: Eventually, there could be a third rescue once I pass this negative through something different than my humble Epson 3170, or then, maybe not…
