Smartz and I took a trip to Fort Casey two weekends ago. I brought along the Holga. I’m still trying to figure out which film I like best. So far the Kodak Porta 400 is the most realistic-looking, but I’m not totally sure that’s what I’m going for.
This shot is of Deception Pass.
Every other time we’ve been to Fort Casey, the lighthouse has been closed. This time, we could go up in it. I quite dug that.
Fort Casey was a pre-WW2 fort. Its guns were called “disappearing guns.”
That was because they could be lowered when being reloaded or not in use. It made them “invisible” to ships at sea. This was, of course, rendered obsolete when airplanes were invented.
Spring means bright yellow flowers! This was the first picture of a person I took with the Holga. I don’t like taking pictures of people. Too unpredictable or something.
The fort contains emplacements for a bunch of guns. Only two are armed, so you’ve got big holes like this all over the place.
Smartz is taking a picture of me taking a picture of her!
