I had driven by this field within the city many times and was determined to return and photograph it sometime. When I did return, the timing was very agreeable as the farmer was irrigating his potato crop when I was there. If I'm not mistaken, it was after I processed the sheets that I noticed the cloud streaks in sync with the irrigation spray.
Using a large format camera allowed me to press my lens up close to the fencing and crop that portion out without any loss to the image. This is one of the reasons why working in large format is advantageous, i.e., flexibility. Not only can I control the displacement of lens and film planes, but also have a lot of image real estate to work with.
I was quite pleased with the scan, but the silver-gelatin archival fibre prints I have crafted can only provide a true sense of the dynamic multi-sensory experience provided to those who behold real physical prints.
