Office blocks in Basingstoke, August 1978

Taken in 1978 with Pentax S1A 35mm SLR using Pentacon 30mm f3.5 wide angle lens. Ilford FP4 black and white film (125 ASA/ISO), developed in Ilford ID XI. Negative scanned using Canoscan 8800F. The town is Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. In the 1970s this was a 'new town' meaning that the old market town had been buldozed and lots of new, concrete office buildings and shops erected. The white building was occupied by IBM, the grey one by the UK Civil Service Commission. The latter has now been demolished and replaced by a block of high rise flats/apartments. The 'distortion' is due entirely to the wide lens and angle of view, no Photoshop twisting used!
