I took this picture while we waited for our lunch, from under the front canopy of the restaurant along ‘Quai Sainte-Catherine’ at Honfleur, France. I liked the view of this shot panned out from the table to the other patrons and finally the boats in the harbour. I had to bracket the shot with five exposures being a little uncertain of the reading with my Weston Euro meter. Between the dark shadows under the canopies and getting a happy medium with the bright sunlight in the harbour and without silhouetting the people opposite. I’m very please with this image how it came out in the end.
Taken on my Leica M4-2 with a Summicron 50mm f/2. Film used Kodak Tri-X 400 and developed in Kodak D76 1:1 for 13 minutes at 20ºc.
