About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Shooting Crater Lake: 1975

Shooting Crater Lake: 1975

In this image that I didn't know existed until a few days ago, I'm aiming my Nizo Super-8 movie camera across the waters of Oregon's Crater Lake. I'm on a trip with my brother and my friend who took this Kodachrome slide. It's among scores we discovered in a forgotten box in a spare room at his place. View full size.

Style looks modern

I think I still may have that tripod in the attic

Home sweet home.

I live about an hour away from the lake and try to get there at least once a year. It is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.

You own a tripod

You will never see a UFO.

Wizard Island

My current desktop photo is a pic I took last year at Crater Lake:

Double Exposure

It would be interesting to see the Super-8 footage along with this photo. You know, like Van Gogh and Gauguin.
