"We had gotten the news that the mine claims in California were rapidly being sold off. So we had picked up our pace and were pushing hard to reach the end of our journey by September. And then out of a clump of trees came a lone Buffalo, right in our path. Disaster followed. In a moment 'Birdie' the horses was gored, the wagon was upset and two wheels broken. Despite the chaos of the day, we had fresh Buffalo steaks that night."

It may be obvious that I am no Carleton Watkins, but her also traveled to California for the gold rush. Perhaps he would not have overexposed the skull like I did. Since every photo he took was a major investment in time, he would have had much more patience to make sure everything was right before he made the exposure. One thing we as modern digital photographers must learn is to take the same degree of case every time we push the shutter button.
