I've had mixed feelings about this photograph over the years since I made it. On one hand, it's a fairly commonplace record of a man made waterfall, but on the other, it has a decidedly 19th century sensibility to it that I really respond to...old concrete, and an ancient stream that would be musty with age if it were indoors. When I first printed it, I was not toning in sepia and selenium as I do now. That toning makes a big difference in evoking the sense of relative antiquity that I think is inherent here.
It was made with my first view camera, a monorail 4x5 OmegaView using a 210mm Rodenstock Geronar lens.
