|Yashicamat, Ilford HP5+|
Near my new office is this impressive edifice. It is apparently a distributing station. Number 28 to be more precise. I wish I knew what to call the style of this building, and I also wish I knew when it was built, but in my ignorance I would tend to call this Gothamesque. (an update: apparently no. 28 was built in 1933 in the style "PWA Moderne"; thanks to Raelee)
I wanted to photograph it the first time I saw it. Sadly, I was carrying a Pentax Super A with a 50mm f2 lens. I really couldn't frame the building the way I wanted to with that combination. The 50mm is just a little too long. I had brought a 28mm f2.8 to work but I left it back in the office in my bag.
Here is Joel's Yashicamat:

I've waxed poetic about the Yashicamat before. My third post, chevy, is about shooting with this particular camera and talks all about shooting with a TLR so I won't repeat myself here. Suffice to say I have been feeling the 6x6 lately.
