New Project - Galveston Causeway

Although I haven't posted in a while, I have been working on a couple of new projects.  The following are a few images of a series I'm working on with the Galveston Causeway as a subject.  For the technical details on the bridge, check the Traylor Bros. website. I've chosen this bridge as a subject because it is a daily part of my life.  I live close by, so I'm constantly seeing it in new ways.  As I walk my dogs around the neighborhood, the bridge dominates the view to the north.  Light and shadow on the bridge changes by the hour, so at times it looks light and airy where at other times can look dark, ominous and cold.  The images below are obviously of the dark/moody type.

So much for posting every week.

It's been a while since I've posted anything and I'd like to have a great excuse for not doing so.  However, I don't have a good excuse.  I'm just lazy. I shot medium format film for the longest time and processed my own film. Sometimes I'd have a darkroom to print photos, but usually not.  Negatives quite often got processed but would go unprinted.  I've started scanning some of the negatives into my computer using an epson V600 scanner.  Some of these negatives are 15 years old and this is the first time I'm seeing them as a positive image, which makes the slow and boring process of scanning worthwhile.  Unfortunately, my record keeping was non existent, so I have no idea when or where many of the images where taken.

I'm not sure what it is, but there is a certain quality to the images from negatives that I don't seem to get in my digital images.  The combination of grain and graduation of tone is something I really like about these scanned negatives.

The images below are fairly typical of what I've done for a long time with my photography.  Kind of an urban landscape type of photography.

Since my records are non-existent, I believe the following images were taken in the late 90's outside of Salt Lake City.  I do know that they were shot with a Pentax 67 on T-Max 400 film, then recently scanned using a Epson V-600 scanner.
