Went on a road trip a couple of months ago with my friend, but I never put any of the back and white photos up until now. Part one of the road trip, we stopped at the USS Silversides SS236. Now, I’ve been to the submarine quite a few times, since it never ceases to amaze me. I already have a lot of photographs. However this time I decided to photograph things inside the sub a little closer. Usually I’d use a SLR in places like this, but something told me to use my Leica in there. Shot this on Tri X and developed with XTOL.

To your right.
The forward Torpedo tube, a familiar scene, I had a better shot of it with an FE several years ago.
The reason why I took this photo is because the light was red. But of course you won’t be able to see that on black and white film.
Battle flags on a cupboard.
Salt Water Depth to Keel!
Lights and switches interest me.

I like meter with needles.
One of the care-takers locking up at the end of the day. We had a chat with him, he did say the engine of the sub fires up.
Honeywell made good stuff. They re-branded cameras, made adaptable flashes, apparently radar screens, and the thermostat that is currently on my wall.
