I’ll keep this post short, why ?
Well I have pretty much already covered this photograph in a previous post, it’s not the exact same photograph but one is a closer zoom and this one………isn’t.
I like both of them so I am letting you see both of them, I’m normally quite good at making my mind up about these things, sometimes you need to be callous and just pick one and dump the other.
This is also one of the first shots to be taken on my newly borrowed Bronica camera and is a fine example of why I love the square format of medium format photography.
Special thanks to Julie for helping me with the word callous. You know those moments when you have a word on the tip of your tongue but it just won’t make its way down to your fingertips. Well, I had one of those moments, so thanks Julie.

Thank you so much.
This looks like the tree roots are not happy underground and are coming up like the undead. It is a very complex scene. I really like it and you really need to look into to it rather than at it. I want to see this blown up to about 6 foot square and see all the tiny pebbles and dirt up and is that a lego wheel about 1/3 up from the bottom left?
Great shots as always Dave. I can’t just keep saying this but these are great.
Thanks so much James, you are the man with the kindest words of all.
Another day in the darkroom yesterday so another batch on the way soon.
Hey James, forgot to mention to you about the lego wheel.
I have just magnified the original print and it’s actually a small nut by the looks of things.
Next time I am going to bring a lego wheel and plant it in the photo just for you. We can play a kind of where’s wally game, except it will be a where’s the lego wheel game.
Hope you have yourself a magnifying glass.
Go on cool a nut wonder where it came from…..I do have a mag glass as my sight confuses me most times. Find the hidden lego….I’m up for it. Look forward to seeing more of theses pictures.
Find the nut, what a great game eh. [nudge nudge wink wink]
This is amazing… sensual and macabre!
Thanks again Val.
I’ve always thought there was something just a little bit macabre about it, glad you think so too.
