Film takes a little bit longer to get up on the blog than the digital pictures do, and in this case it took a REALLY long time. There are a few more step involved (like having a darkroom) that make to process longer.
Under the 4×5 gallery you will find a couple of photos from Snow Canyon State Park in southern Utah followed by a couple near Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 35mm gallery includes a trip with Nick to Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis, a couple of walks by the Red River in Fargo, North Dakota, Maplewood State Park, Minnesota and more photos from the southern Utah road trip.
Enjoy and leave comments!
This is long overdue to post, but it takes significantly longer when working with large format film and need to have darkroom facilities. The photos below were taken on 4×5 Kodalith Ortho Type 3 film. This isn’t the typical use for this film, but it was a fun experiment nonetheless. The photos were taken mid-day, tray developed, scanned and then edited on the computer. It was fun, and I am glad that I have about 175 more sheets of this stuff. Let me know what you think!
You can find the rest of the post and gallery here: Las Vegas Nevada August, September 2010 and January 2011
I didn’t have to travel far for this post. I was up one night and saw the fog roll in about two in the morning. It was such a nice night that I couldn’t resist taking a few photos. This is literally within one block of my house. After a few photos I went for a walk. You have to take advantage of nice days and nights when you live where I live. Enjoy.
Another quick trip to Las Vegas. I went down to see Nate one last time before he left Vegas and married his love. We spent a lot of the time preparing his stuff for moving back to North Dakota for the summer, but we did get a little trip in to St. George, Utah. So Nate, Fred, John and I hopped in Nate’s Scion and started driving. It took us a couple of hours to get there, but was worth every minute of driving. We started shooting photos just outside of St. George by a volcano cone which we proceeded to climb. Little did we know that it was the largest one in the area, and the soil was loose volcanic rock. Needless to say, it was a hard trek in the hot desert sun. Good thing we had our water with us. The first seven photos are from this area. It was a challenge and it was a good time. The seventh photo shows that the way down wasn’t easy either.
Our second stop was Snow Canyon State Park. The rest of the photos are from this area. It was a relaxing time as there wasn’t very many other people out there and it was near sunset. If you get off the road a little bit, there are photo gems everywhere. We enjoyed the sunset, a rain shower in the distance and a wonderfully nice day. Enjoy the photos and visit if you have a chance.
Hawaii. Seriously one of the most beautiful places on earth. I had a few more days to stay this time. 5 days of hanging out at the beach, snorkeling, watching amazing sunsets, hiking to waterfalls, and soaking in the sun.
While snorkeling I saw sea turtles, many fish and heard the whales calling out. When you watch the video at the bottom of this post entitled “Sea Turtle!” make sure that you listen for the whales. They shouldn’t be hard to hear. There are also some photos of fish and the like. So nice to swim in the ocean.
We also went on a short hike at Twin Falls after I bought my new Chaco sandals (about time huh?). The rain was pouring down, but it was still enjoyable even though we were in out swim gear.
Through the lava field that was made in the ’60’s, there was a shallow pool that warmed in the sun and in the lava rock. We found sea urchins, crab, fish and many other forms of life hanging out in the pool. It was also another enjoyable swim.
Unfortunately it came to an end again and I went back home to Moorhead. I am heading back in May though! Enjoy the photos and videos. Leave a comment if you like!
