West Seattle Totem Pole in Black and White Infrared

~ Click To Enlarge ~

I shot this totem pole in the late ’90s in Viewpoint Park in West Seattle. It was shot on my all-time favorite (but a pain to work with!) film: Kodak HIE Infrared. Looks like with a Canon 24mm lens on my AE-1P. Interesting story: one day a crew with a crane pulled up and removed the pole. Stolen. Just like that. It’s back in place, and it has been restored. Quite a beautiful piece of work.

 Totem pole.

    Amazing! IR is by no means an easy way of creating and it looks like you found the moment at an excellent time of day. Thank you for sharing this…

      Hey Gregger!

      Thanks for comments. I loved the look of IR film, but it was always a battle in the darkroom!
