Brooklyn Roundhouse - in Sepia

I feel funny saying this, but it seems as if I'm on the edge of finally having something to show for my 40+ years of effort. These more closely express what and how I feel about old heavy machinery than any photographic approach I've ever taken up to this point.

 

After thinking about this for awhile, the analog traditional photographic approach to creating the images in this series would be some thing like... light controlled solarization... micro contrast masks... unsharp masks... cold tone paper... sepia toning... followed by a dash of selenium toning. All this would have taken me a month working on a single image.

 

Now? Well... you see the results here...
