Granite Head
Only $50.00 USD delivered via USPS Priority Mail
While walking along the steep edge of a granite dome in Yosemite’s high country I discovered this odd formation that resembled a statue at Michigan State University in East Lansing where I lived as a youth.

Despite the steep slope I got the camera focused on it and made several exposures on Polaroid type 52. These were beautiful so I coated them and put them in my case to dry and shot several sheets of film.

I gave one of the Polaroids to Ansel Adams and he published it in his book " The Polaroid Technique Manual". The original now resides in the Eastman Permanent Collection in Rochester NY.

This photograph was taken on Kodak 4x5 Super-XX with a 210mm Schneider lens using a Graphic View II camera.
