The original image was shot on Fuji Velvia film, which was certainly my favorite when shooting slides. It was shot alongside a bridge in Morgantown, West Virginia. I had actually been attracted to the scene because of the fog that formed along the water and after a few shots, I returned to the car. Before getting in the car, however, I took a look back and saw the tugboat coming. I grabbed my camera and ran back to the bridge, in time to take one shot.
I have sold a color version of this print numerous times and always felt that it would work at least as well in black and white. I used the slide to expose a sheet of halftone film, developed with dilute (probably 20:1) Dektol. It was printed using the Van Dyke process.
