This day has always been a special one for me!
On this day 36 years ago, I spent the afternoon making photos at Palmer, Massachusetts.
I exposed this image using my father’s Rollei model T loaded with Kodak VPX (Verichrome Pan) 120-size black & white film that I later processed in Kodak D76 developer.
At that time I was attending Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts where I was studying photography and music.

On this day in 1985, I exposed this view at Palmer, Massachusetts using my father’s Rollei Model T.
I silhouetted the setting sun behind the northward home signal at Central Vermont’s diamond crossing with Conrail’s Boston Line.
This old search light was soon replaced with a modern color light. Last year that signal was again replaced by even more modern hardware.
