Horses at the round barn. Taken with Ansco/Agfa 1923 studio 8x10 film camera. Lens is a 300 mm Tessar f4.5 -- a faintly wide angle for this size negative. 100 ISO film, f22 at 1/30 sec exposure.

I took this photo with a camera that was 4 years older than the barn, which was built in 1927.

Jeff Beddow's curator insight, March 19, 2013 12:27 AM

I took this photo.  The barn is being preserved at great cost to the present owner. He spent over $50,000 recently to reroof the structure.  At this point, communities need to consider helping to preserve these landmarks of American culture.

Jeff Beddow's insight:

I have jumped back into the darkroom recently.  My 8x10 camera took me out into the fields in late winter to take photos of barns, and more recently I have been running film through my Leica and processing some old rolls that I had been saving for some time.

 

This is a photo taken with a Minolta AF film SLR on Ilford Delta 400 bulk rolled 35mm film and processed in Kodak HC110 developer.  I have rediscovered this developer film combination and am very happy with it.
