Abandoned Citroën H Van and Citroën 2CV.

This is a monochrome photograph of an abandoned Citroën ‘H’ Van and Citroën ‘2CV’.

I took this picture in Brittany, circa May 1992. The Van was a drab, silver-gray colour and the 2CV was white. This somewhere near Quimper. There was, pretty much, nothing else besides more empty fields around this area.

The empty, quiet, loneliness, except for these two dumped vehicles, seemed at that time to fit my frame of mind. I had lost my Father the previous October and my maternal Grandmother on Christmas eve night; both to cancer.

Though I’m never sad looking at this picture. Moreover, I had and still have a sense of acceptance and of moving on. No, I never feel down at seeing this photograph.

The film is Kodak 5063 TX or as I knew and loved it Tri-X. I would have rated the film at 1600ASA/ISO using a red cokin ‘A’ filter and developed the film in Kodak HC110 solution B, 1+39. I was, just a little, into that infrared-ish look back then. #photography #monochrome #film #Quimper #Brittany #Citroën
