Yet again, the last post reminded me of scale, how disproportionate items can become, especially in vast landscapes. The tiny vehicle against the huge sky – well, another image hit my mind…
Another exploration into the desert, this time yielding a visit to these talc mines. Like The Pumpkin Patch, it’s a feature that is just sitting there. No huge advertisements pointing to a tourist attraction – you nearly just stumble over it.
Scale is deceiving here and something I learned when capturing images – how to creatively capture the scale. In this instance, these cagers are large enough to drive trucks through, as was the case when mining the talc. White, fine talc powder is evident everywhere. The mines keep going down, but as is the case with these abandoned locations, safety is questionable and so it’s advisable not to venture too deep down.Advertisements
