Going back through things I discovered a pair of rolls from the spring that I never posted. I set it aside since it was shot on 120 film and I’d started focusing on 4×5.
So on a cold morning on the last day of March, we ventured to the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden Colorado to photograph train cars and steam engines. I shot with my Mamiya 6, a wide angle 50 mm lens, orange filter, and Kodak T-max 100 film. The negatives were lab processed and scanned by the “Old School Photo Lab.”
We start with engine 191, the oldest surviving engine in Colorado from the 1880’s.
I then tried a closer crop.
The rail cars provided fantastic texture.
Endless compositions of mechanical parts.
Old train depot.
I liked the abstract nature of the foot prints in the snow and the diagonal lines from the tracks.
An extremely weathered open car.
