Antarctica with a Leica M6

I have a few black and white photos taken at Casey Station, Antarctica last summer. All taken down near the wharf. All with my Leica M6, Voigtlander 35mm lens and Kodak Tri-X film. Straight off the scanner.

This one came from the ocean and left, seen here on his way back for a swim.rgatfield_antarctica_leicaM6_summer1314_webres4  Some sea ice accumulated near the rocks. rgatfield_antarctica_leicaM6_summer1314_webres2 The ice/snow on the foreshore is undercut by the water movement. rgatfield_antarctica_leicaM6_summer1314_webresA small iceburg floating around the bay.

Larundel Psychiatric Hospital

I found another abandoned mental hospital to photograph. Australia sure does have a few still around. I’m not sure how much longer this one will be here, as it looks like the developers are coming in to demolish soon. I heard it has been here for 15+ years in the abandoned state it is in today. It is huge. Many buildings. Lots of rooms. A massive area all up. I was in a rush with the fading sunlight, so i’ll have to get back there soon.
