Looking Down The Barrel Of The Boom | Mining Industrial Photographer James Hodgins

The leading lines created by the boom brings your eyes directly to the heart of the image as well as the heart of the equipment…………the operator.  I think this is why I find the jumbo so appealing to photograph.  The ambient light from the deck throws just enough illumination to light the booms without overpowering the surrounding environment where you might lose the line of sight due to the business of the whole scene.  

Of course this is purely a photographers point of view but there is an essence of “art” within specific images created in the underground world.
