    A fine shot, Paul, but it’s not painted when you’re shooting in B&W.

    Hi Russ,

    what does the fact that it’s B&W have to do with it?

    Thanks,

    Erik

    Hi Erik. Ever seen Painted Desert? It’s painted. Various sand and rock levels are different colors. Paul’s photograph is graphically superb, but usually when people photograph the Painted Desert they do it in color.

    And Paul, this has nothing to do with photography, but in (I think it was 1937 or possibly 38) I spent a night in Painted Desert Inn. We were on our way to Arizona and stopped for the night. I shot these pictures in about 2002. The room to the right is the one my brother and I slept in. The breakfast room hadn’t changed since we were there.

    Ah, ok, sorry, sometimes it’s a bit difficult to catch humour in a foreign language – like English for me. Cheers! 😃

    Thanks, Russ. Amazing that place remained unchanged. I guess it got petrified like the trees did. And here’s one in color, for those who prefer their paint in color.

    Equally impressive as painted in B&W.

    Another fine shot, Paul. Not as graphically stunning as the B&W, but a proper capture of the nature of Painted Desert.
