Out of all the pictures I made with the Trip 35 and the first roll of film, this one pleased me the most. I really like the ship in the background – didn’t even see it when I clicked. The Santa Barbara Channel is a main shipping channel and route for migratory whales.

The Trip 35 is a zone focusing system, where the focus is determined by 4 different clicks, from about 3 feet away to infinity. Here I wanted to see how it did with a leaf at the closest level. The rest blurs out . . . not too bad.
I brought two cameras for our trip to the Carpinteria Bluffs above the Pacific Ocean. One was the Nikon V3, and the other the Trip 35. This is from the Trip, and it did a pretty good job! There really is something about film that digital cannot replicate.
Years ago a friend mentioned the “nasty urchins” in her garden . . . Testing out the Trip 35, I found some, and thought it would be a good subject matter for the camera.
Taken along one of the trails in a local open space, Mount Clef in the distance. You can see how dry it is in SoCal after 5 years of drought. Rain is predicted next week, but I doubt it will show up. Wah.
I’m not really sure what kind of plant this is – maybe a salvia – but it has the most lovely little, blue flowers on it. They sort of got lost in all the bluish-green foliage.
Another shot from the Trip 35. I take this bag everywhere – to work, to class, to the market, wherever. And it is a pleasantly purple item with room for a laptop, books, papers, clothes, cameras, phones. Here, The Bag rests in the trunk of the car, off on another adventure.
