Weekly Black & White Photo

1918 Baldwin Locomotive

This image was created by using a DSLR and a 28 – 200mm lens. The ISO was 400 and exposed for 1/500 sec @f/8.

The Builders Plate on the side of the Engine reads, “The Baldwin Locomotive Works, Philadelphia U.S.A. 43105, April 1918. With that in mind I felt that a photo with the look of a 1920’s style photograph would be the best way of showing this scene.

Yes, this is the same Locomotive (Mountain Thunder) as seen in last weeks photoblog entry, but with a different view and a different effect. And this image I like even better than the one from last week as it seems more like what a photo might look like back in the 20’s or 30's and captured on 120 or 220 B&W square film in a box camera.

Yeah, even 20’s style of photography is part of my world and I hope you like it…


  1. Very nice. The effects used does make it look like an "ol' time" photo. Thinking outside the box always makes for a nice photo. Well Done!

  2. Great shot Glenn. Has a wonderful "old" feel about it. Reminds me of an old post card you might find at a junk shop. Well done!

  3. Beautifully done Glen.
    I'm currently working to rebuild a very old house and from time to time i'm finding some of these old images ...

  4. Thanks to all of you for your time in viewing my site and for leaving such nice comments... so much appreciated.
