I have the hardest time keeping up with tourist posts. They should be so easy, because that's definitely when I take the most photos. Alas, so many scans, so little posts.
There's nothing quite like finding a gem in a pawn shop. I spotted this Seagull one day while on the hunt for a new 35mm and was immediately fascinated by it. I'm already a sucker for a TLR, but I especially can't resist one I've never encountered before.
Lucky for me, Hutch snagged it later (for much cheaper than it should have been. Score.) and brought it home as a half birthday gift. The mechanics remind me of a large format camera, and it has a mask that allows you to shoot either 6x6 or 6x4.5 *major heart eyes*.
In my typical fashion, it took WAY too long to get the film developed. I'm just glad to see it works, no matter how weirdly I messed up the first roll. That's what happens when you count exposures incorrectly and don't discover the mask situation until after you finish the roll. Whoops.
I honestly don't remember when or where in Oklahoma these were taken, I just know they exist.
Last November during our trip up to Portland, we took a day to visit some water at Cape Lookout. Cold beaches beat warm beaches any day.
We got out there just in time to watch the tide come up and a storm roll in - needless to say it was the best. We got thoroughly (and happily) soaked and sand covered before heading to a tiny pub to warm up.
We don't have to talk about how I'm about a year late posting this trip, right? Okay, great.
I love knowing that Roswell is a short day trip away, but also a little sad that I don't go there more often. It's a pretty small place, but I would love to spend more time wandering around and taking in all the kitschy goodness.
I stumbled across this roll of super expired Portra recently (that I hadn't labeled for some reason), and threw it in with the last batch of film I sent off to get processed. I had already prepared myself for it to be blank, so I was pleasantly surprised to see moody, grainy, at least two year old images. They appear to be from right after we moved, but I can't seem to wrap my brain around what day it is this week, much less how long it's been since we moved.
