Taken around the "interesting" bits of Stoke on Trent. Always lots of pics round here for me - very scenic! I wanted to get the gritty atmosphere and hence the development in Rodinal for the grain. It will not be long before such areas have disappeared in the "Five Towns."They seem to be tidying up everything!

I think you have achieved the gritty look you were after with your film/developer combination. I like the positioning of the trolley, and the effect of the sunlit metal.

I like those trolleys and their adventures as well. With an open eye you can find them at astoundingly different places. Of course they are only sleeping, maybe waiting for the reincarnation... Wink
And I also sort of fancy the places, tarred, concreted, but abandoned long enough to let the plants come back, having a strange micro-climate, hotter than usual, inviting even cicada (or simply crickets...).
I guess, I would have been tempted to use one higher gradation, just to make it a bit harder,grittier. Probably it would have been to much. I like your result a lot!
Thanks for showing!

This was grade 4.5 Martin. Grade 5 was a little bit too much.

Wow, 4.5?! I certainly see your point.
