Shotton Steelworks

One of my earliest negatives, which must have been taken in the late seventies or early eighties, as the steelworks closed around this time.  I was working on a crane there (wearing my 'electronics' hat) but managed to sneak through one of the doors of this huge shed and grab this shot from the shadows.  I only took the one shot and the exposure was a bit of a guess, as are the settings I've shown here - surely you don't expect me to remember that far back!.

Olympus OM1 - 35mm lens.  1/60 sec f5.6 ?
Ilford FP4 film.
