Description This is a photo of wet granite rocks at the Bonnie Branch dam in Patapsco State Park, in Ellicott City, Maryland. The wall of the dam (made of large, rough-hewn granite blocks) stands on the left, and trees growing on the ground above the dam appear at the top. Notice how you're enveloped and immersed in this surreal scene of raspy-edged, rough rocks on a misty, drizzly day. I took this photo with a large format (4x5) film pinhole camera.
Scott Speck, Baltimore, Maryland, USA Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement My website begins at www.scottspeck.com, and it includes links to my flickr photostream, more views of my pinhole photos, and other links.
I am a scientist, astronomer, mathematician, and engineer by trade, and a pinhole photographer by passion. Though I occasionally do "lensed photography", I generally do work with pinhole and zone plate cameras, where no lens is used. I work with either large format (4x5) or medium format film.
