Have a Spooky Halloween!

Enjoy your Halloween:


And a note to Twitter Followers.  This will be the last direct re-posting thru TwitterFeed, which dies at Midnight tonight........I will manually tweet a best of from this blog, and it will continue as my Photo Diary.  But for all the Updates you will have to follow the Blog Directly.  My Fine Art Photo Blog will continue to go directly to Twitter.

Ute Mountain Park: Lion Canyon




Two "views" of Lion Canyon, named for Mountain Lions that were found living in one of the cliff dwellings.  The only real difference is some Photoshop Fun removing my husband from the image.  I'm working o a photo project that needs to be 'people free' and I wanted to include this image.

Back to Ute Mountain.......


First, the actual Ute Mountain that the Reservation is named for.

And some decisions about this blog......I've started a new "Fine Art Photography", but will continue to post here as a sort of Photographic Diary........

52 Rolls Week #40

Just 12 more postings to go for this project.  And it has been a great experience.  I'll probably go for one more round next year.....It has kept me shooting and helped me to set new goals.

Ute Mountain Tribal Park: The Ancient Ones

The Ute Tribe in Colorado (more properly the Weminuche People) have many Spectacular Cliff Dwellings on their reservation.  Accessible only by arranged Guided Tours.  We visited there last week with Our Photography Club......

The first location we visited was Porcupine Canyon:



We'll look at more scenes from The Ancient Ones over the next few days.

First the Ruins of the Steps that this Cliff Dwelling is named for:


Kiva @ Step House:


Ladder @ Step House:


These are B&W conversions of digital images.  I've optimized them for Printing (in case they seem a bit dark).  These are candidates for my Personal Vision Project........Comments Appreciated.

Pipe Shrine House @ Mesa Verde

We made a recent trip to Mesa Verde with our Photography Club (UWPC).  Lot's of time to think on the road out there and back.  So I've decided to keep this Blog as my photo diary, and post my Personal Vision Journey on Word Press.

52 Rolls: Week 39:52

Nokhu Crags West of Cameron Pass:



I was experimenting with Ilford SFX-200 IR Sensitive film using an IR 695 Filter (which lets in some visible light).  I'm liking this much better than SFX experiments using the darkest red filter. I only used a filter factor of +2 here, so next time I'll try +3.

See more from Week #39.

52 Rolls Week 38:52

Film Test and chasing Fall across Colorado.  We find ourselves at Boreas Pass, a place we've been before.

First we revisit the Baker Water Tank taken in 2011 with my last 120 roll of Kodak 100GX:



Next an image from this year taken with Fuji Velvia 50:



And a comparison to Fujicolor Pro 400H:



Yu can see why I preferred Kodak E100GX to Velvia 50....It has better true color rendering.  The Velvia 50 image would need more manipulation.


See the Current Film Test Results Here.

We are Considering a Move.......

So what do you think?  I've been working on the Word Press site for the 52 rolls Project.  I've gotten used to it and there are features that I like.  I am considering moving my Active Blogging to Word Press.   Somewhat frustrated with Google constantly 'updating" and mucking around with settings.

So If You have an opinion let me know.

Would you continue to follow at Word Press?
Would you follow on Twitter?
Should I stay Here?



I will also be posting a Survey on Twitter.........You can vote there for the next few days........I am also investigating ways of cross-posting to both blogs.......

52 Rolls Week #37: Boreas Pass Railway Festival

Over exposed, but still interesting.  After two over exposed rolls, I wondered if there was a problem with my Canonet Rangefinder.  Then I checked the settings I found that I was shooting everything on 1/60 sec., when I thought it was on Auto exposure.........

The one properly exposed image was indoors:


Check out my mistakes here @ 52 Rolls.
