52 Rolls Week 36:52

Lazy me….I have several rolls here but have not developed them or mailed them to my Photo Lab……So What to Post?  Then I realized I had never shared the color 35mm from Garnet, Montana.  So why not now?  Revisit Garnet in B&W.

Let’s start with something cute….The Honeymoon Cabin.  Reserved for newly arrived couples to encourage men to bring wives with them (there being a big shortage of women out west). Newlyweds were given free lodging until they could build their own cabin. I especially liked the lace curtain blowing through the window.

Redux of the Hotel…….For interiors see the B&W images.

The Hotel was one of the largest and best preserved building,

while some cabins had seen better days…..

 

We also took a tour of the mining area near town.  Littered with the Flotsam and Jetsam of Mining activities…..

 

And two types on mine entrances: Mine Shafts ( Left-vertical) and Adits (Right-horizontal):

Along with Sluice  Ditches and random chains…etc

 

And the Ever Present Out House….many of which remained in tact here:

Tech Info:  Minolta XD-11, Tamron 28-200 Zoom lens, Kodak Portra 400, Developed and scanned by Old School Photo Lab.

  1. Yes it is! We arrived very late in the day, but wandered through the mining tour, and decided to go back for a second day to catch better light and focus on B&W.
