Boquillas, Mexico

This is one of the few older prints I have that I can actually date.  The picture was taken with a Mimiyaflex in 1980 in Boquillas, Mexico.  Boquillas is across the Rio Grande River from Big Bend National Park in Texas.  I took a row boat across to Mexico, walked about a mile or so to the town.  Printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

Warehouse Scale

I found this scale in an abandoned warehouse in the San Joaquin Valley in Central California.  Can't remember the exact location.  Shot with a Mamaiya C22 in very low light, a fairly thin negative, printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

The rather large grain comes from high desert heat.  Shot in Amboy, California on 35 mm film.  I used either a Nikkormat  or a Kodak Retina C3.  Printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

Oro Grande, California

This one was shot with the Mamiya C22 and printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

Palm Tree, LACMA

This one used a rather easy technique.  I have a couple of very old, out of date, envelopes of Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.  I made a very quick exposure, using the same negative on all four prints, and then painted the developer on the print.  The negative was exposed with a Holga camera.  This palm tree is outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Broad Building.  Photographed 2014.

I shot this with the Mamiya C22.  The film was out of date, as in the use by date was 20 years earlier.  I shot it in my apartment, at night, lit with a 40 watt bulb.  The negative came out very thin.  I printed it on Ilford multi-grade, matte, fiber base paper.
