Flickr and Empire Mine

Flickr is one of my favorite sites. Since I have a minor in Photography, albiet from long ago, I love seeing how others capture images. I'm not so interested in pictures which have been manipulated by a photo-editor as I am by the technical expertise and talent needed to capture the original image.

Here are some images I took of Empire Mine, California, near Grass Valley, a couple of years ago. Some of them look like I'm leaning or tilting left. An anomoly I haven't quite explained to myself yet.

Just out side the mine. I used to see these way back in the 60's as we drove across the country from one duty station to another.

I think I'll change my picture to this one. I'd kinda like to have this office.

On the grounds.
