Old Technology

Aside from photographing landscapes I like to make pictures of still life objects, including old buildings and the stuff that is inside them, especially ones that are still in use. While on a recent trip to Gibson's B.C., I was wandering around town and came across Cole's Marine, operated by Gord, who allowed me to photograph an engine he had under repair, the old building had large windows that allowed plenty of natural lighting to spill in. In this case the engine parts arranged by the owner on his work bench made for kind of a natural metal sculpture which I photographed with my 4 x 5 view camera and a 120mm lens.
