The Olympus Trip 35 can be an amazing little camera – as can UltraMax film. Admittedly, I pushed the colors a bit as backlighting can be tricky. This was taken last June on an early morning walk in the neighborhood.
About 7 a.m. I looked up from the news and my coffee; the fog was slowly evaporating to give way to a brilliant morning: The sun, the fog, the trees.
Been busy with other things … but here are some daisies using Fuji Velvia 100.
I always liked the name of “daisy” – it means “day’s eye” – and these bright yellow ones certainly do cheer up the landscape.
Another image from last week’s morning hike through one of my favorite trails. The light was wonderful, brightening spots here and there, filtering colors above into greens and golds.
Morning glare – what lies ahead? I’ve walked down this trail so many times, I know what tree is where, but each time there is something new to see, something new to hear, something new to smell.
Sunday morning we had weather! Like clouds in a normally cloudless sky. Rain. Chilly weather at 72F. And it was heaven.
So, loaded with film and with digital, I walked along the creek, about 50 feet above it on the Moonrise trail. For me, this is a bit of a sketchy trail because it’s a bit treacherous here and there, so always best with a friend. I shot a lot of panos that morning, and took a roll of film, too, with my Canonet QL17. Here is one of the panos of that exquisite morning sky. Click on it a couple of times to see it larger.
Another phone picture . . . today, at the end of October, we are having nearly 100F here in SoCal. Rain next week . . . or so they say. The drought continues.
