Fujica GW 690 Professional, Fujinon EBC 90mm f/3.5, 1/125, f11 – Rollei Retro 400S
Developed in Adox Rodinal at 1:25, 10½ mins at 20°c.
Ray Lonsdale’s statue Tommy has featured here before but I rather like the atmosphere in this image shot on Rollei Retro 400S film and make no apologies for featuring it again.
The 9ft 5in (2.87m) tall statue is officailly named 1101 (Eleven-O-One) which refers to the first minute of peace after the armistice was declared at 11am on 11 November 1918, but everyone seems to know it as Tommy (a reference to the popular nickname of Tommy Atkins for a common soldier in the British Army).
The statue was unveiled close to the war memorial in Seaham, County Durham, on 4 August 2014, the centenary of Britain’s declaration of war on Germany.
