Manzanar #1

Manzanar 1

In 2021 we headed out on what was to be a 3 week long road trip. The first part was up the Eastern Sierra along Hwy. 395, stopping and staying in Independence, CA. One of the most notable places to see along this route was Manzanar National Historic Site – a not very nice part of US history. It is a Japanese internment camp which was built for imprisoning Japanese Americans, natives of this country, and therefore citizens, as well as immigrants.

I took along a digital camera, and a folding camera, the Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 521/16. Only now am I scanning the film – it took quite some time to finishing up the roll! I used Kodak TriX 400 and got twelve 6×6 images out of the roll, which is 120 film. To process the film, I took it to a local lab and then scanned it myself using the Epson V600 and Negative Lab Pro in Lightroom.

However, the trip ended when we got breakthrough Covid. We headed back home, sadly, but better safe than sorry, eh?

    1. Breakthrough Covid is a mild case of Covid gotten after receiving a vaccination. We were vaccinated a few months earlier and while on the trip my husband lost his sense of taste and smell – and we were traveling through a lot of smoke and ash as we drove through a forest fire! Good thing we turned around as my husband’s father got really sick from the last fire he had been in, one for which he had been evacuated. They came and stayed with us for a week. Glad you like the shot!
