When the pandemic hit and canceled a trip to Switzerland, fine art photographer Edward Fielding decided to stay close to home in Grantham, NH and tackle a project – restoring a 1970s era electromechanical pinball machine.
He started by moving out the cars and converting his garage into a suitable work area and then located a suitable vintage pinball machine to restore.
Previously Fielding had brought a 1976 Bally Hang Glider pinball machine back from the dead. That machine was found stored under a barn in the Keene area.
Following a lead to the Ossipee, NH area, his new find had more potential to be restored into a showpiece. A 1972 Gottlieb World Series pinball machine that was mostly working but filthy, had mismatched rubbers, weak flippers, dead pop bumpers and burnt out bulbs...

(At a crowded table. Mojitos.
Indoor springs of electric lights.)
I think if how people are
like mountain pools.
Illuminated is the not-so-pure
ascorbic silt of our years,
the mint, a weed that, turning,
uncovers our secrets
at midday lunch.
(Talk)... All babble
lapping against bare, grinning rock.
(More rum) White water churning
above spiralling currents.
"So, how did you two meet?"
(a too-knowing smile).
I feel a trickle right between the eyes.
Okay, so I fell in love with his lips.
Even before he kissed me.
We're having a fling.
How about you?

Landscapes appeal to the masses. Places make a personal connection to the art buyer by invoking past memories. Landscapes can appeal to anyone in a general sense of appreciation for nature’s marvels. Places hold a deeper connection for those who have experienced them up close and personal.
One can travel the world in search of the most stunning landscapes yet find that the bestselling photograph might be in their own neighborhood.

Before the untamed American West became civilized it has to go through periods of unrest, toil, boom and bust. Much of this was driven by the lust for gold, silver and other precious metals.
Bannack, Montana, now a ghost town in Beaverhead County, Montana, United States, located on Grasshopper Creek, approximately 11 miles (18 km) upstream from where Grasshopper Creek joins with the Beaverhead River south of Dillon. Founded in 1862, the town contemporarily operates as a National Historic Landmark and is managed by the state of Montana as Bannack State Park.

We're almost a year into this global pandemic now. After a year of slowing down, staying home and learning to move at a slower pace, just about any break in the daily routine becomes something exciting.
Take laundry day for example. The basket is full of pjs, sweatpants, loungewear, and other casual apparel. Oh, joy! Time to do something a bit different.
It makes me wonder what will happen after the pandemic. Granted it will not happen overnight or suddenly. It will be a gradual process before we get on an airplane again, go out to dinner or attend a charity ball. Have we permanently learned to slow down? Will life move at a slower pace? Maybe it's not all bad.

A few years ago we lived next to a farm, or at least a house with a big old dairy barn and hayfields.
The fields are left to grow early in the summer for the Bobolinks birds that nest in the tall grass and then an old vintage tractor comes a few times to cut and bale the hay.
Living across the street from this great old barn and beautiful rural landscape I had great access to photograph the barn during the best times of light – sunrise and sunset as well as in all kinds of weather in spring, summer, fall, and winter.

Two rusty old abandoned trucks in the Arizona desert. Fine art photography by Edward M. Fielding.
Old Friends - two old rusty vintage cars in the high desert of Arizona. “Wickedest Town in the West”. Jerome Arizona. Located near the top of Cleopatra Hill between Prescott and Flagstaff is the historic copper mining town of Jerome.
Jerome was nearly a ghost town until the state offered free houses to anyone willing to occupy them and fix them up. Artists moved in and inhabited the structures which appear to be hanging on to the cliffside for dear life.
Underneath the town is vast mining tunnels that often blew up and burned with mine fires that lasted for months.
Cracks in foundations and building that slide from one side of the street to the other is all just part of the charm as is the ghosts of prostitutes and miners that are said to walk the streets at night.
Just past the galleries, restaurants, and gift shops in Jerome is the Gold King Mine with its eccentric collection of old mining equipment and vehicles from the past.
