Das Boot

Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

Das Boot

Postby LarryD » Wed Sep 13, 2017 3:22 pm

The LST 325 is in town again. It shows up here every few years. It got delayed a day because of our Harvey flooding but it is here however; now Irma is dumping on us. so we will see if it clears off and they can keep the river down so I can go back Tomorrow or Friday when the weather breaks.

I shot this with a Nikon F55 that I was given. I had some OLD Agfa APX 100 that expired in 2002 but I had it frozen since 2001 for the most part so I shot it normal then developed it in HC-110 dilution H. I had the times for it in a binder as the film was changed right before they went out of business.

Many people joke that LST stands fore Large Slow Target. :shock: This boat is based in Evansville IN and tours every so often around the inland rivers. Here is a link to their Page. http://www.lstmemorial.org/

A very nice series. I liked APX 100 a lot.

These were likened in the surface Navy to the diesel boats in the sub service. Kind of ratty, but fun to serve on.
