Thirty Shots of the Good Old Days in Izmir, Turkey

All images taken by the author using a Leica M6 TTL Camera, Leica Summarit M 35 mm f 2.5 Lens. Ilford HP5 Plus (at 1600). Hand developed by the author with Kodak HC-110. Taken in 2018. Most frames were shot at night without using a flash. So they were shot on 1/15 second shutter speed, without using a tripod. This is easy to do with a Leica M6, as the shutter does not jiggle the camera even at 1/8 second. 

That’s All.

The Siege of Lucknow 1857: Images from the Residency in Lucknow, India

In 1856,the British overthrew the Dynasty of the Newab of Lucknow. The Newab was exiled to Calcutta (Kolkata). The next year, the Indians launched the first chapter in the “Indian War of Independence” for freedom from British rule. Some two thousand British perished. The buildings of the Residency still bear the bullet holes and scars from the battles in 1857. An interesting place to visit if one travels to Lucknow, the capitol of the state of Uttar Pradesh.
