    Thousands of images have been taken in the Owens Valley...

    ...and in Bodie.

    Yet there are millions of images still out there - just for the taking. Unique viewpoints, fantastic light, images never seen.

    Unique images are out there right at this moment - but most likely no photographer there to capture these images...

    To be there, to see, to be inspired, and to be able to communite what is seen and felt through photography - that is the challenge!


    Be there in October!

    Who needs a tripod with a large format camera?

    We all follow Wilbur's advice: Camera mount on jogging stroller - next to GPS unit and cup holder! (- And above chain saw and coffee maker!)

    You guys can always join me in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia in October. I'm meeting an APUG member in Adelaide and driving up from there (1500km or so).

    From personal experience light in Bodie Ca. and the Ancient Bristlecone forest in the White mountains E. of Bishop Ca. is the most challenging I've ever come across. Both are well over 8,000 foot elevation and regularly see relative humidity in low single digits. If it's a sunny day and that is the light you'll need to work with, I've seen 5 stops difference between shadows and mid zones. It is TOUGH to deal with. Per's method of pre-flashing the film to bring up the shadows will make believers out of you.

    Folks smarter than me take one look and put the camera away. I love to wander in either place, and since problem solving is a photographers real job, I make negs even in bad light.

    Sharon & I would love to make it again. We had a blast last year. Depends on our move to Boise and new jobs.

    something there is about a wall

    That's standard O P for me, I ve got the 3 wheeled stroller etc, and my own hard hat....but now the camera is bigger... and I was sort of wondering if the crane and fork lift would draw too much unwanted attention.... also erecting stem wall wind breaks really help when patiently waiting for the light.....

    Think of the wonderful service in Bodie:

    - Fresh Coffee served every hour, Donuts provided by Bodie Bakery, Home made ice cream sold on every street corner! Fresh gun battles to photograph every hour - Or are we a hundred and 20 years toooo late??
