|The perils of folder photography - in this case the Zeiss Ikon Ikomat 520 with a 7cm f3.5 Tessar - from ~1933... the concept was simple: it was a dark day and getting darker, I had Tmax 400 in the camera, and thus estimated a shallow-dof shot for the cannon. Despite careful framing I cut out the bottom of the plaque. On the positive side, it's pretty well legible, the plaque is... I'm also not happy with my creative choice of lining up the pillar in the back with the mouth of the gun.
