Argus Seventy-five

Several years ago, while assisting in the making of a short film about a photographer, we were using an argus Seventy-five as a prop.  As we set up the shot, I noticed that the actors face was visible in the front of the camera.  I captured three different expressions which became this tryptic.

Watchers On The Ledge

Three old friends stand together, silent observers of the landscape that lies below them.

Like A Spider

I’m reminded of a spider working its way down a slender strand of web to reach a distant destination in its smaller world.  Although, this world was a bit bigger, as was the spider.

Entangled

The west is filled with grand visions of grand vistas, mountains and beautiful coastal areas.  But I also discovered that there are amazing tree shapes to be explored.  Yes, there are plenty of trees that grow tall and straight, but in the high desert area, there are scrub trees that attain some of the most unusual shapes I have ever seen.  This is just one example of the images I am working with from the area.  This one is more root structure than what might be seen growing above ground, but it has obviously been worked on by time, water and air.  This image is from my visit to Smith Rock State Park near Redmond, Oregon.
