Cee’s B & W: Things Made From Wood

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things Made From Wood.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some photos from the early 1980s. I decided to go with one photo from last summer and one from 36 years ago. Both feature some old, weathered and worn wood.

First, an interior of a ward in a former small pox hospital. I documented the hospital prior to the site being cleared in the early 1980s. The site was being developed to make way for new medical research facilities.

The remains of wood piles sticking out of the water on Colpoy’s Bay, South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Taken last year, I couldn’t take the shot this summer as the water level in the bay is up this year. Only the tips of the tallest piles are sticking out of the water at the moment.

I probably wouldn’t be allowed inside nowadays with health and safety. You were never sure you weren’t going to fall through the floor in places.

Very true. Around the same time I was shooting motorsports for a couple of magazines. Sometimes you were close enough you could almost reach out and touch the motorcycle or car.

I remember covering the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race with a 135mm as my longest lens and using my 50mm lens most of the time.
