About the photo and the film:

616 Verichrome Pan (expired June 1962) found at a thrift store, exposed in a well-worn Super Ikonta D. 9 minutes in HC110-H, agitation 1 minute plus once per minute. Old Verichrome Pan often holds up well, so it seemed the best choice for night exposures. The film was extremely dry and brittle, with minimal fog consistently toward the middle rather than the edges. Leading edge needed to be re-taped before loading. North Island Princess (pictured) is a classic coastal ferry, scheduled for retirement soon. Zeiss-Ikon Super Ikonta D, 12.5cm f4.5 Tessar. Exposure about 3 minutes, aperture on the classic red dot just past f11. Taken March 13, 2020.
