Pelican On The Fox


Original limited edition black and white prints.


I was out for a jog one morning downtown Green Bay. As I often do, I had my Little Canonet rangefinder camera with me. I have recently been testing Fomapan 400 film and that is what was loaded into the camera.

As I came over the Main St. bridge in Green Bay I noticed this lone Pelican fishing all by himself. I made it to the middle of the bridge and decided it would be a nice composition with a single bird and a lot of negative space. The 40mm lens on the Canonet composed the shot rather nicely from that point on the bridge and had the other bridge. I just needed to wait till the pelican was turned back into the frame as it was looking in the wrong direction.  The bird turned as I had hoped and I clicked the very quiet shutter of the rangefinder camera.

I am quite fond of the heavy grain that this film has. It has become one of my favorite films to use when I want a grittier look to the image.

Do check out the Youtube video on exactly how I printed this in my darkroom! Click on the thumbnail in the gallery above.
