The Journey Begins
The Journey Begins A friend and I went exploring one early morning out east of Reno,and while banging out in the hills we came upon this old abandoned mine....Yes I know logic says if it is not a working mine there is reason it's not.........Sooooo being guys we went in,Damn was it dark.....Wandered into the heart of the mountain and came to the end..........This is the shot from around the bend to the end. In retrospect it wasn't a smart thing to do ,but damn it was cool.

This is one of my favorite shots and here is why. Way back in 1948 my father in law was a Los Angeles police officer working the beat in Hollywood as a motorcycle cop. About five or so years into his job he was working a auto accident up comes this news paper photographer from the LA Times they chat and each does there job and leaves. So once in while as the years go by they run into each other at what ever was news worthy. My fathering law quits the force to build pools for the stars and starts Roman Pools. The years go on the photographer retires and puts his camera away and wraps it up in news paper, dated 1955 and never uses it again. A few years ago I got divorced and met someone else a few years after that happened we married. My wife’s Parents became ill so we sold our house and moved to Reno to be near them if they needed help. I worked for a company that does church directories and was transferred. Well one day I was sent to Sacramento and while there I met an older gentleman who asked me if I knew any one that wanted an old Speed Graphic I said sure I would be interested. So later that day he brought it by and I took a look at it and bought the kit for 50.00. Which included the flashgun and the standard 147mm lens with holders and even the processing kit. So I take it home buy some 4x5 film and realize that’s it’s actually 31/4 x 41/4 holders which means I have to cut the film down. Which I do and think it’s the right size, which turns out they were a tad to snug so some bowed. Which is why the top of the tree is fuzzy. Anyway I go out take some pictures come home open up the processing kit, process the negs. And when I am putting away the stuff I find a business card of the guy that owned the camera and I ask my father in law if he knew the guy . Keep in mind it’s been 60+ years, he thinks a minute and then asks who again and I tell him oh sure we used to work the accidents together he was an ambulance chaser for the Times. So I ask you what are the odds of me buying this relic from the past and people that it intersected both of their lives in one form or another. That’s why I like this shot is because it reminds me of memories of way back when photographers went west taking shots to sell to folks on the East coast. For exotic travel. It has that feel of times lost, when life was harsh yet simple. But it makes a cool story huh and it’s true too weird huh.

Saw this air plane flying over the mountains as my wife and I sat in the car watching the storm. We think man rules the world but if you see this little speck fly over the beauty of this mountain you realize we are just a wink of geological time. When man is gone this mountain will still be standing,makes you pause a moment to enjoy its beauty.

Found this jewel while I was having my truck worked on. Took my dog Mister for a walk up the street and came across a very long line of box cars,on a off spur. I took off his leash and said have at it. I walked up to a few cars and nothing reached out and said take me take me. Then the next car said you do not leave until i tell you my story,this is just part of its story.

Monterey Memories Shot this in 1979 with my 500C Hasselblad on Ektachrome when this was one of the go to films for cool colors. I was living in Monterey where my soon to be then wife was going to college and I was an apprentice /photographer for the local big gun photographer. In the early morning the fog would roll in and I would walk down to the bay and try to capture that moment when it creeped to that ah ha time.You click the shutter,finish the roll send it to kodak to process and you wait.Yes that's right you waited for days to get that one roll you hoped would be that image you saw for that split second. I looked at this image said close but not what I wanted,who knew thirty some years later I would find this shot,scan it. What I saw was this image way back when and thanks to modern tech. it brought out the magic of that morning.Film plus tech works.
Point to the clouds
Disney's concert hall downtown Los Angeles mid day. Bought a roll of Ilford FXS film to play with while in LA and decided what a cool shot one or two of this building would make. I used a R25 red filter and a Linear Polarizer together, was hoping to get the sky black and rest of the building a lighter tone. Well it worked out to be the opposite forgot this film works like IR film sorta but this works too.Enjoy

Treasure Hunters Dream
He awoke with a start from a very realistic dream about hidden treasure by a waterfall that splits. This was crazy why would he dream of a treasure behind a waterfall when he has not been to one like that. But wait he was in an antique store during lunch and came across that same image,he wondered if it really was a treasure map like the old man that owned the shop said it was. Ill go at lunch and buy it what could it hurt he thought. At lunch he wandered down to the antique store and found it covered with police,he asked the first one he could what happened. Some jerk came into the store held the old man up and the only thing he took was some old picture of a waterfall. I think he means this one,so step right up and get your treasure map. Other sizes are available through me
Take a moment and look at this and you will know why I call it this.
