    Grainy results? They look great to me.

    Interesting somewhat historical photo of Mount Rushmore

    Just came across this 8 x 10 photo in going through some old family photo boxes. My grandfather was a professional photographer in Minnesota and had a professional portrait studio back in the 30's and 40's. I came across this photo of Mount Rushmore that I'm pretty sure was taken by him on a family vacation/outing.

    It is clearly taken just about the time the mountain was finished so that would have been 1940 - 41. All four presidents are done, but there is still scaffolding on top of Roosevelt and if you look closely, you can see a couple of cables that are still in place.

    What makes this interesting (at least to me) is that the photo is hand colored most likely colored by my grandmother who I understand helped my grandfather with coloring the photos he took. It would be really cool if I also had the original negative of this, but we couldn't find it anywhere.

    impressive. Can you tell a bit about the camera, lens, processing, etc? I'd love to know how you got that gauzy, dreamy effect.

    I'm almost embarrassed to post these; the lighting is so flat and overcast and generally feeble that they are perhaps quite the worst pictures I have taken... nonetheless, it turns out that if you visit Lacock Abbey with a vintage 5x4 over your shoulder you get an amazing amount of respect (as well as an amazing amount of questions, and your photo taken many times).

    Best questions were from a kid of twelve or thirteen who'd been given an electric camera for Christmas and after requesting the full spiel - open lens, iris up, compose picture upside down, measure light, close lens, set exposure, set iris, insert film carrier, remove dark slide, click, etc - asked how it did videos!

    These are all taken with a 1940s Micro Precision Press, with the original uncoated Xenar lens, using out-of-date (and no longer available) Adox CHS 50 developed 7 minutes in RO9 one-shot at 50-1. I suspect the temperature wasn't as well controlled as it might have been; they look a little under developed, to add to their general nastiness.

    Enjoy (or not)...


    'That' oriel window, from the outside - far too busy inside to set up the shot I really wanted.

    Still inhabited by the caretakers of the property.


    Some beautiful lens flare...and a hair in the scan. Oh well...

    I had the pleasure of talking to people whose family had lived in the village since the 1800s, and who had been photographed (and still had the photos) by Fox Talbot. Unfortunately the pictures were in a museum so I couldn't see them.

    And perhaps slightly better, though the light was equally as bad... Wells and the cathedral.

    Hey, you are still lapping those of us on the couch.

    And very nice compositions.
