Lake Solitude (1957)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

During the summer that I worked in Grand Teton National Park, I wanted to begin taking Kodachrome slides. My father had two Argus C3 cameras, and he mailed one to me. I took this on a hike during one of my days off; it is one of my very first slide photos.

After all these years the slides seem to be in pretty good condition. But than again the Kodakchrome is famous for that. Perhaps a somewhat blueish haze but I think that was there already when it was taken. Great historical work of this majestic lake.

Regards, Erik

In many ways, in fact in all ways, taking photos with a 'real' camera was a much greater challenge Marilyn. Beautiful scenery here, and such a well-named lake.

I have seen many photos of the Grand Teton National Park and would love to visit.

Cheers, Amelia

VERY NICE SHOT. . .

Andrea Riberti on August 18, 2012

This view is so nice. I just love place like this one. I have the chance to live in a quite wild mountain area so when I see beautiful pictures like yours I know what you are "talking" about...I think slides are still better than digital photography. It's a personal point of view, of course. Well exposed slides are "plastic", they have a sort of multidimensional effect that I can't afford with my Nikon D700. Let's see what will happen with the 36000000 millions of pixels charged on the D800. Anyway, the problem now is that if you want to shoot traditional you have to pay for it very expensive. More than before. At least in my area. I still develop black and white in a restored dark room. I use it as pedagogic support with problematic boys and girls. Every-time we need papers and developing liquids we have to order it on internet as the store in town doesn't sell them anymore. We are loosing a man made technique because this digital world is everywhere now. It doesn't must to be bad, in a way. There are advantages, of course. However I am sad when I see those young people completely unable to do something with theirs hands...

I've waited far too long to thank each of you individually, but despite the way I've neglected your comments, I DO appreciate them. I'm glad that you've enjoyed seeing this scan of one of my very earliest slides (diapositives). I'm grateful that the slides have held up as well as they did, for they bring back wonderful memories, like the memory of this hike. My knees will never let me go here again!

Though I'm not thanking you individually, I am enjoying looking at the galleries of each of you.

Greetings from Canada. Marilyn
