September was my third attempt to visit Cedar Breaks National Monument, Utah. The previous two times I was snowed out (in the summer time mind you!). Finally made it this past September…..
And a little photo Merge Fun!
Wishing You a Happy Holiday weekend……..I’ve been cooking since 7:00 AM!
A while ago Chris Gampat had a very insightful article on the Phoblographer regarding the “5 of Our Favorite Film Rangefinder Cameras (One for Everyone)” Guess what? I bought one…….This was my first test roll through the Fuji GW690 III. Boxed like new and delivered from Japan in a timely manner.
Now for my Very Dramatic second roll through this camera…….Roosevelt Dam:
Apache Lake, Canyon Lake and the Superstition Mountains…….
The lens for the GW690III is known for it’s high contrast. I’d never thought about lenses affecting the contrast. But see the difference between my Mamiya 7 and this camera at the Superstition Mountains:

I can’t wait to print this image. Taken with my new/old Fuji GW690II, this was only the second roll through the camera. The subject, the Roosevelt Dam at Salt Creek, AZ. Oooooh that Black Water!
Yes my Image is grainy and high contrast, but I’m not trying to copy the Sexton Style, I am instead drawing a link in Personal Vision of what represents Beauty. Inspired by His Book, “Places of Power” and an appreciation of Industrial Beauty:
