A few more examples of what I've come to think of as my adventures in ISO 6400 - handheld night photography.
You know, it's just as well they're not called Spencer & Marks.

I really like the grain, these are excellent
Thank you Marc.
Bags of atmosphere - great contrast and tonal range. Crackers all.
Thank you Bruce.
excellent little series, I thought M&S stood for Michael and Spaceman
Was it a Bronica, most 645s have 80mm lenses, or should I say, all the ones I see advertised, the Bronica has 75mm.
What did you develop in. Back in the 60s and 70s I used to use 400 ASA, I expect it was HP5, in 35mm and wind it up to 3200 and develop it in what was called a surveillance developer, can't remember its name, they had some grain in them
Hiya Mick, nice to hear from you. Yep, it's a Bronica I use. Just checked the lens and it's a 75mm. I developed the film in Ilford DD-X which is the most expensive developer I've ever used (£15 for a litre and it has to be used at 1:4 not the more usual 1:9). I've just bought a bottle of Ilfosol 3 which is much better value - just have to see if it's as good as the DD-X. I've really got the bug for this handheld night photography lark - but I've got to wait months for those early winter nights
Superb set of images, wonderful tones and very well taken for me it has to be V1.
Thank you Hugh.
Very nice set of images, I think the tonal quality is excellent on all of these, very evocative.
Thanks Andy. I find that even the drabbest of subjects can be transformed when photographed at night.
'You know, it's just as well they're not called Spencer & Marks.'
Love this - excellently done. Great portfolio.
Thanks Sandra, I'm glad somebody got the joke
And thank you for looking at my other stuff as well - much appreciated.
wow looks like a 60's photo
the brilliant black and white masterpieces
Thank you Maureen, it's kind of you to say so.
#1 is superb — the row of people at the bottom of the frame really makes it.
Re #3, I think 'operative', as a noun, is my least favourite word in the English language. It's so demeaning. An 'operator' is somebody who is active, who takes control and makes independent decisions, a human being; an 'operative' is something that is operational, merely performing its function, an automaton. When I am Supreme Ruler of the Universe, the sign will say 'Caution: workers'. We now return you to your scheduled programming, Grumpy Old Men.
Do you know, I'd never even noticed that word until you mentioned it. You're entirely correct.
