MY PHOTOGRAPHS


Photo Galleries

Much of my photography has been done using my 1980's era 35mm Minolta X-700 SLR. The Sacramento State and American River Parkway images were created with a Nikon CoolPix 4500 digital camera.

Gold Rush Era Cemeteries

In the winter of 2010-11 I visited several old graveyards located in Sierra Nevada towns that started out as mining camps. Many of the tombstones are beautifully carved with Victorian imagery, and the inscriptions tell stories of lives that were often cut short in a difficult time.

The photos are posted on two webpages: Gold Rush Cemeteries and Gold Rush Cemeteries-2. I shot on black and white film, Ilford brand. Most of the film was 100 ISO; with a couple rolls of 400 speed film. I used my 1980's Minolta X-700 35 mm camera for all the images.


Folsom Powerhouse Photos

During the summer of 2008 I made several visits to the Folsom Powerhouse, which started producing electricity in 1895. I took photos of the powerhouse with three of my vintage cameras; my 1950's Zeiss-Ikon Nettar foldout camera, my late 1960's/early 1970's Yashica-D twin lens reflex camera, and my Kodak Baby Brownie camera.


Yosemite National Park Photos

During late May of 2008 I spent a week in beautiful Yosemite National Park with my parents, Darrell and Joanne Hansen. I borrowed Dad's late 1950's Zeiss Ikon 35 mm leaf shutter camera, and shot several rolls of black and white film. Depending on the time of day I used either Ilford Delta 100 film (midday), or Ilford HP5 400 film (late afternoon). I love using this camera; the leaf shutter makes the coolest, crisp sound when the shutter is tripped.

I have two webpages showcasing my Yosemite photos, one has photos of our hike to Sentinel Dome and our visit to Glacier Point. The other Yosemite page has photos of Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and our hike to Vernal Falls.

California Central Coast Photos

In October 2008 I visited the coast, spending three days cruising around Santa Cruz, Capitola and Aptos. I took two of my vintage medium format cameras (both take 120 film); my 1950's Zeiss-Ikon Nettar foldout camera, and my late 1960's/early 1970's Yashica-D twin lens reflex camera.
