Travel Thursday: Lundy, California

Road to Lundy

Lundy is a tiny dot on the map of the Eastern Sierra, a few miles west of Mono Lake. In the mid- to late 1800s, it was a gold mining town of some size. Today it's not much more than a sleepy fishing spot on Lundy Lake, with a general store, a historical marker and a few ramshackle trailers and cabins scattered on a couple of dirt roads. It's still a pretty spot, though, and there are a lot worse places you could spend an afternoon.

that top image is way cool! did it start as B&W and then you added the bronze tone (on my monitor it appears bronze)?

I shot it originally in color, then just desaturated it on the computer and cranked up the sepia. Same with the one of the wood and screws in the long grass.

Goddam! that's gorgeous. Strong shot, Generik.

Thanks, ahab. That was a submission to JPG Magazine for the edition that just came out. They didn't pick it, of course, but that's nothing new.

The first photo reminds me of the opening of "The Shining."
