Friction Wheel, Bodie


This photograph was made the one and only time I've ever been to Bodie.

I honestly didn't find much in the town attractive to my camera, although many other photographers were there, dodging tourists and trying to photograph all the rusty stuff.

Just before I set off for the parking lot, the midafternoon sun on this mineshaft elevator clutch compelled me to unfold my camera.

The lens used was a 210mm Rodenstock, and the T-Max 100 film was given dilute and extended development to hold detail in both the shadow areas and highlights.

This photograph viewed on the web tends to look a slight bit more contrasty than the actual print.

I've printed this negative in the darkroom and on my Epson 3000 with the Piezography inks from Cone Editions and legion Somerset Enhanced paper.

All my scans are made by the staff at West Coast Imaging.
