East Deerfield Sunset‑Variations on a Scene.

Groundhog Day 2017.

Mike Gardner and I were in place at East Deerfield Yard (near Greenfield, Massachusetts) to document the arrival of Pan Am symbol freight POED (from Portland, Maine).

As the freight pulled beneath the bridge at the west-end of the yard, I made a series of photographs with different cameras.

I often work with two or more cameras at the same time: digital, black & white film, color slide film (results pending), more digital. That’s my style of making images. I sort out the results later.

Any favorites?

  1. I liked the first Lumix, the close-up, and the final Fuji, against the light, where the filter seems to be rather effective. In this case, the black & white didn’t click with me – I felt it was rather overall grey. It’s not a bad picture, but lacks the impact of some of the other recent b+w.

  2. Last two were my favs! Nice effect with the clouds and sun and sky . A result of the neutral density filter ? Looks amazing !
