Verrazano Bridge on Kodak Tri-X 400 Developed in Xtol 1+1

On Sunday, I met up with Joel and Barry at the 95th Street R stop in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Our destination was the Verrazano Bridge. It was roughly 22 degrees that day, but we bundled up and spent two hours waterside in South Brooklyn. I shot a few rolls of film, including a roll of Kodak Tri-X 40o, developed tonight for a quick preview. The Tri-X 400 was shot in my Hasselblad 501cm and Zeiss Planar 80mm f2.8 lens and developed in Kodak Xtol developer at 1+1 strength for 8 minutes. This was my first time seeing the Verrazano Bridge up close and personal (i.e. not from a car crossing it). It's a majestic bridge, built in the 1960s, that connects Brooklyn and Staten Island. At the time it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. The developers actually had to consider the curvature of the earth when building the Verrazano. Each tower is 693 feet tall and they stand 4,260 feet apart.
