The Wild, Wild West.
« on: May 28, 2012, 07:53:23 AM »
I'm sure these images have been posted before but nevertheless worth another look.

When you think of the logistical nightmare of just getting there compounded by the gear you would have had to cart (literally) along for me that's a miracle in itself. Why didn't he use his iPhone? :-\

Nice to see the requisite figure(s) in the landscapes to add scale. Some of the subjects look a bit whiffy! ???

Thanks for posting, Alan.
I visited a lot of those sites years ago and it's really interesting to see these old photographs.

Thanks for posting Abbers.

Boat crew of the picture including the photographer look like a band of desperadoes!  :o

Well he beats you Abbers, he has a Mobil darkroom!  :P

Love the picture of the miners underground lit by 'flash'  One wonders how he got that equipment underground in the first place.  :o

I'm surprised he didn't use Photoshop to clean up the images first. Not going to win any prizes!  :uglystupid2:
