Oh my! I thought I had posted all of the photos from film that I had. But no, there was another roll just sitting there collecting virtual dust.
And lucky me (and you), this is my favorite film so far – FujiChrome Provia 100.
I took this shots before leaving on the Memorial Day trip to Oregon. The first four were taken at Larabee Beach near Bellingham, Washington.
We saw over 100 purple star fish there. Some people call them “sea stars,” but those people need lives.
I guess I like this film because it can give some really realistic colors when it wants to.
But dips into weird darkness when it feels like it.
I’m sure it had more to do with the sun and the plastic toy camera that I was using than the film itself.
Oh, take a look at this picture. It’s the wonderful neon Portland sign defaced by the asshat trying to lease out space in the building. This is worse than pointless graffiti.
Sometimes it would be nice for these shots to work out. But the sun is full of glare.
Little known fact: You can focus a Holga. In this photo, I forgot to. Some people say that it doesn’t make a difference where the focus is, but these people aren’t quite right. For far away shots, it really doesn’t matter. But when you get closer, it certainly does.
I’ve been thinking about which one of my cameras I like best. It’s really hard to figure out. The Holga is fun and simple. I like that. It produces some interesting shots with happy accidents. But sometimes I just want a nice shot.
