    Re: Americana

    I have what may be a broader definition of what is Americana, but I think this qualifies. There were more than 60 of these small ski hill operations in Idaho alone. This 1940s truck ran for more than 30 years running a tow rope, then broke down the week after I took the photo in 2007. The operator is also a hunting outfitter and had two young kids skiing on the slope.

    Shot this at an ice cream shop in the next town over from me while I was still in Vermont.

    RODEO! Tonopah Nevada Memorial Day weekend 2019

    My one and only shot from a 120 year old Kodak Panoram 4B (with all faults)
    Light leak is fixed with rubber bands now, and next try will be with Ortho film to try to get a bit better focus with the limited lens system.

    No doubt this would have been better in color.

    Thanks, Roger -- came across them on Treasure Island...before they started the re-development of it. I had my three boys with me, but I have not printed any of the images of the boys with the doggies. I would have loved to have had the 8x10 with me!

    Wow, this takes me back to my misspent youth, I've always been a huge fan of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, used to have a sizable collection of my own back in the day.

    Re: Americana

    A bit unsure where to post this, I decided that Memorial Day decorations count as "Americana." We have a number of similar wreaths near Madison and Florham Park, NJ, this one seemed to have the least intrusive background, and I was shooting with my 210/5.6 wide open to blur what background there was. I cropped the 4x5 negative scan since the sides weren't adding anything to the image, but I liked the landscape orientation better than a similar image I made in portrait format. HP5+, Pyrocat-HD, cropped and minor contrast adjustment in PS.
