I am going to start a new series of B&W images which I made over a period of a few days in the spring of 1988 using my Linhof 6×17 panorama camera. As I was working at the time and because it got dark early and I needed to travel between 20-30 kilometers, I was forced to make very long time exposures for most of these images. Anywhere from a few seconds to well over a minute was normal. Some of the structures in this series of images no longer appear anywhere close to what is shown in these images. In fact, this garage in East Coulee, was renovated and clad with steel paneling and painted. I like the older look better, but it is now, at least it was a few years ago when I last visited the area, run as a proper filling station with it’s new look and new pumps too. I will be showing these images (6 anyway) at the Fine Photography Gallery in Drumheller later this spring.
