Traveling the back roads
This image was made with my 4x5 view camera a few years ago in the rural country side of upstate N.Y. I always enjoyed riding out with my camera gear and see what I would come upon in my travels. This old farmer's name was Ray, and he was more than happy to let me take his portrait. He lived alone with his old dog "Millie" on his farm that he no longer worked. He was a quiet man and my time spent with him was enjoyable and memorable. I scanned the 11x14 print to get a digital image. Some tonality and detail is lost in the process when compared to the original silver gelatin print.
