    The lovely old Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah Nevada is being restored. The windows are clean for the first time in perhaps 35 years, and it prompted some photography. I posted 6 images at a new page at my web site.

    Stunning work, Jim... and from an $84 camera!

    (I never look at these things on eBay; I feel sorely chastised )

    Thanks for opening my eyes.

    Barry.

    Gardening tools.



    This set-up made me nervous. Deardorff 5X7 with a 14 inch Artar at nearly full extension pointed straight down at my wife's gardening trowels and forks. Even though I am over 6 feet, I had to stand on a stool to see the ground glass. FP4 and Rodinal. Probably my favorite image since I succumbed to this LF madness.

    Good stuff Bill. I'm always nervous any time I'm that close to my wife's gardening tools. Nothing good can come from that!

    Wow Bill, the detail is fabulous. Great tones, composition and shadow detail IMO.

    Here's a different version of a picture I posted in the 'Urban' thread a few days back. I think the other one better shows just how hemmed in this poor old Victorian is, but I like the train wires here.

    FWIW, I prefer the higher vantage point of the earlier version, because you can see more of the house.

    This reminds me very much of the house in the movie UP from several months ago.

    Nice shot.

    Thanks Leigh. I think the earlier version is better myself, but just couldn't let this one go yet. And you're the second person now to mention 'Up.' I honestly hadn't thought of that when I made it, but I do now!
