Angel’s Crash Landing

Black And White Photography, Emilio, Photography

Angel’s Ladies was a legal brothel just 3 miles north of Beatty Nevada, originally known as Fran’s Star Ranch (also Circle C Ranch and Vickie’s Star Ranch). In 1978 an accident during a promotional stunt on the property resulted in the crash of a twin-engined light aircraft. The wreck was left on the property ever since and used to attract customers from the road. The business was sold for the last time in 2010 for $1.8 million, and has been closed since 2014.

Lunch Break

I just happened upon this scene when all the workmen had taken a lunch break. I rather fancy the pagoda-like quality of the staging, and the way the metal planking bounced light into the shadows.

Miners Boots Coal Mine #3 Spitsbergen

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

 


One of the things we did while on Svalbard was visit Coal Mine #3. It was in operation from 1971 until 1996. The working height was only 60-90cms Take a tape measure and see for yourselves how small that is,then imagine an 8 hour shift laying on your side.. When the mine closed in November of 1996 all the equipment was left in place. The guide told us that the word came down about the closure half way through a shift so a lot of tools and other equipment was just left as it was. A fascinating few hours well worth getting a little dirt on the camera bag.

This Is What Happens When …

… the work week has been so full that there has not been time to even think about taking a photo.  While walking towards the door of the office, fretting all the while about the lack of a photo for the blog, this little guy (gal?) appeared ahead on the sidewalk.

Out comes the cellphone, one quick shot, and it’s off to see patients.

Frankly, the colors of the shell are so pretty, that I wish I could share it in color.  Even still, isn’t nature amazing?

Miradoiro

Miradorio is Portuguese and means viewpoint. Here we are … over the old town quarter Alfama of Lisboa. In the back, you can see some portions of the river Tajo.
