Texture Tuesday for June 14

DCF 1.0

The Audrey headframe at the Little Daisy mine in Jerome. This is the largest wooden headframe still standing in Arizona.

The first layer is straight from the camera, the second layer is a copy of the background changed to black and white and set at colour dodge 67%, then the texture “stained linen” at multiply 61%.

DCF 1.0

The headframe has been opened to the public – the shaft is covered with glass and you can stand on it and look down, if you dare! This picture was taken through a grate next to the glass. The shaft was used to bring ore out of the mine, it’s 1900 feet deep and the water level is at 1500 feet.

1900 feet!! Yikes! I love the processing you did on these photos, just gorgeous. And interesting process with the black and white layer. I'll have to try that some time. : )

Be well

When I realized I was looking down a hole and not in a hallway, my stomach did a flip. I cannot imagine capturing that image--but it is really cool! Love the first one with the teals and browns and the unique structure! Fantastic texture work!
