They can be used handheld as they have a grip and are reasonably small and light. However, especially for architecture, the 47mm (Cambo Wide 470, equivalent to a 15mm for the 135 format) is going to be quite tough to shoot handheld.

    Nice work!

    I used one of those heavy duty round sinks to wash up for 30 years, easy to clean to your elbows and turn on with the foot switch

    There were similar group showers and exactly those lockers

    Almost certainly still in use today, seemed to be indestructible cast granite

    Indeed, you do ... and very well done, too!

    I would love to do more of this type of photography, but so much of it involves trespassing, which I'm increasingly reluctant to do given how much scrutiny and/or harassment I'm already subject to because of the nighttime photography that is my primary focus these days.

    (On several occasions, it was only the fact that I wasn't actually doing anything illegal that prevented me from being arrested. I know that appears to be a tautological statement, but it's not, because when the police are actively harassing you, they'll arrest you -- or at least threaten to do so -- for any minor thing they possibly can ... btdt, many, many times over the past decade. <sigh>)
