An OId Table & Chairs …

Something a little different this time round .. While from time to time I launch out of the box I live and expand what I am doing within my level of photographic knowledge. Recently I worked on a few image to try and make them look like images that Ansel Adams would of taken in the 1930′s ie my homage to Ansel Adams via the Cliffs Of Yosemite National Park or my attempt at at 1970′s National Geographic cover image Seasons Flow both of which found an enthusiastic but oh so small audience.

So this time round it is something a little similar yet a little different from myself … I named the image 1930 although this was being used as kitchen well before 1930, but I named it 1930 because of the almost empty cupboard of food, something that would of been very common in 1930 …

enjoy and/or flame away :)

    damned nice Neal!

  2. Cheers Christian … ;)

  3. A beautiful and poignant image! The tones, textures and details are superb. Love everything about it!

  4. thanks katrina … the image has grown on myself as well … Think I may print one for the home ….

  5. This is great Neal. The hurricane lamp in the top corner and the tone really does give it a vintage feel.

  6. Thanks Charlene just branching out a little here and there trying a few new things … I tried the tone once before in a vintage style Yosemite image but with this image the blending as a little different … This room has not been touch I am told since 1880 …

  7. Remarkably well preserved! I really dig your Yosemite black and whites (or should i say brass & white), and it translates well to colour. Thumbs up!

  8. these areas in Bodie are all fenced off. YOu can get about as close as I did and have to shoot through wire barricades and wait in line for your turn … The day I was there it was seemed packed … but well worth it …. thanks for the comment on my brass ‘n’ whites, liking that term …

    Love this image Neal, well executed.

  10. Cheers Pete I appreciate the feedback.

  11. Very well executed and evocative image Neal! The lantern’s position is a bit distracting for me but i guess there was not a lot you could do about it.

  12. thank you Tim … yeah your right not much room for alternate pov at this location, but i guess they have to preserve the authenticity of the environment as well …
