Summer seems to be drawing to a close here in the Pacific Northwest and I have to admit I feel like I dodged a bullet a little bit. The temperature never got too particularly high this summer and we didn’t have to deal with any wildfire smoke like we have in the last few years. A touch of mugginess is the worst we got and though I don’t like muggy weather it could have been a whole lot worse.
I’ve got a pretty big backlog of film to develop that I exposed over the last few months. It’s always a good feeling to be heading into fall and winter with a lot of film to work on. It means I will stay plenty busy for the next six months or so and by the time I’m completely sick of developing film the weather will be get warmer again. Sort of nice little cycle don’t you think?
This image was made with my trusty ol’ Mamiya C330 TLR with some tried and true Fomapan 100 speed film. I got to the beach on Sauvie Island right around when the sun was just peaking up over the horizon which made some really nice and dramatic lighting. This was more or less one of those moments where it would be impossible to make a bad image. Perfect lighting, a fabulous location, and wonderful person to work with, and my favorite camera and film combination.
