Back in the Camera Club days

The old hospital building 
One thing is certain they did't have such a thing as Fish and Chips when that place was built. There was a crowd of us went up to Bristol for a try at night scene photographs. As far as I can remember I used Ilford HP3 and developed in Johnsons' Unitol.
Never printed the negative because contrast and shading when enlarging was too much to cope with.
Now thanks to the 4870 it was easy to alter and then Elements 6 did a little twitch to lighten the shadows and then darken the light patches. I reckon it is passable now. Wonder what Flickr responses there will be. Might even make the photo page. Some of the shit they put on there is certainly a lot worse.
