Steampunk birthday

These pictures haunt me.  I don’t know exactly what went wrong but they didn’t turn out like they should have.  This is the companion piece to the whiskey tasting birthday, husband & wife, and was made using the exact same camera, lens, and film combination (Tri-X pushed to 1600 in the SPII with the 1.4/50 Super-Takumar).  Originally I thought that maybe the camera light meter’s battery was finally giving up the ghost after 9 years, which still might be the case, but the other possibility is just as likely, that I dumped the developer too soon.  It’s actually very believable that I lost count of the minutes and didn’t push this film the full two stops.

Live and learn, I guess.  Besides shooting 35mm I also took a couple photos on 4×5 film, coming at some point in the future.
