One of the problems of going to state parks that have a major public draw is that you see many of the same images out there. In the case of Bodie many of the buildings, shots through the windows and cars have been photographed several times. This does create the challenge of finding something new. Whether it’s through lighting, angle or subject you have to find something different.
While at Bodie I went minimal with one body and lens on a strap, Nikon D3, 24-70 AF-S f/2.8, on Lexar Digital Film. I really do like the 24-70 for walking around purposes. It’s just a good focal range combined with being light and small. When working with foreground subjects that require getting low it worked quite nicely. These wheelbarrows caught my attention when I was walking around. They seemed like one object that I hadn’t seen in too many photographs and given the character of the wheelbarrows it seemed like the right subject to work with.
