I made this photograph in 2004. I was driving to the Kingsley Plantation, and was startled to see a road like this that just isn't the kind of scene one finds in the northeast. I had my 4x5 kit with me that day, and the negative is rich in detail and tonal gradations (as only a large format film negative can be, and digital files simply can't.). It's strikingly similar to the photograph I posted a week ago of the arbored path at Washington Oaks State Park. The road to Kingsley, however, never looked like this when the plantation was under active cultivation. All these acres were cleared and planted. The lush, abundant flora has taken over in the interval since.
