Your photography is a record of your living, for anyone who really sees. - Paul Strand
Just got home from the Hills. Actually, arrived after dark, watched the sun hit the Sierras in the morning and was going to just hit the road. After a couple weeks walking around the desert with the 8x10 I was sort of rocked-out, had enough sun and heat and wind, and there are just so many people there now all the time. I had a long way to drive to get home (~600 miles), wanted to stop in Bishop and still get home the next day.
But I ended up making several images -- my 'new' Fuji 360W was just too much fun to use and I used it for a couple 4x10s -- as well as my Fuji W 250/6.7 . My Fuji W 300 is jealous. Cloud-less, but the morning light was very nice. Some flowers starting. There was even a little water running in for a short way in one of the creek beds. And of course there was a fellow with his truck stuck trying to cross it (tow truck already called). Long shots are getting harder to do without someone's camper, or the like, in one's photos. One wonders how long uncontrolled use of the area will be allowed to continue. Too many of us retired old farts!
