That's interesting - where is it, and what are these structures?

This very nice image looks like it belongs in an old history or geography book from around the turn of the century. I like it very much.
Thank you for your attention, my dear friend, I'll upload a few pictures to share to you.

Laaber Loch

FP4+ shot at 125. Calumet 4x5 camera w/ Caltar 210N. Photo of the negative on my light box made with Canon 7D. From a series a lochs that appear to have been used for irrigation about 150-200 years ago. The day was quite windy, which at first disappointed. But after seeing the negative, my mind changed.

Celilo FallsóColumbia River, Oregon

This is the longest continuously inhabited site in North America, dating back approximately 15,000 years until the US Army Corps of Engineers built a dam at The Dalles in 1957. You have to use your imagination.....

The Aboriginal fish traps in the Barwon River at Brewarrina, NSW, Australia.

These fish traps are almost half a kilometre long and are believed to be 40,000 years old making them one of the oldest man made structures on Earth.

Thanks for the link. This is interesting. The large "Monks Mound" as mentioned in that article is located about 5 hrs drive from Chicago, and I am planning a photo trip there. :cool:

If anyone posts a man-made structure more ancient than this, I'll eat my tripod. ;^)

Wow, the first one is so low in contrast, it's really interesting, also you mentioned that this is the last week of the film, I'm curious what you mean by that, are you saying that you're no longer going to be shooting film? Or that you no longer going to be at the location in order to take pictures of ancient architecture on film?

I'm sorry, dear friend, my English sucks, this is my last week to shoot pictures. Not the last

Like seafood? One thing we have (that I haven't photographed) is shell middens. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whaleback_Shell_Midden 30 acres of shells, 30 feet deep at one time. (Since been mostly recycled). I haven't been to this site, but had seen smaller shell heaps on islands and coastal areas in Maine.

Oh my. A double whammy. From the top down I'm liking the clarity and the texture, but your sense of scale is really rocked when you reach the bottom. Very well done sir. Indeed.

Jim, that is one fine photograph. I love the perspective, and imagine what the inhabitants must have seen way down there, looking up. Lovely tones. That's why I hang out on the image threads, to get some inspiration while I slog through all the learning a total newbie needs to acquire.

NickyLai, if you come down to Cahokia to shoot the mounds or "Woodhenge", we could have a LF shoot. I know of one other LF shooter here across the river in St. Louis. The Cahokia mounds have an interesting museum, as well.

Very nice! Composition is great, but it'd be also a good but totally different abstract cropped square deleting the bottom portion.
