Susan and her 4×10, Zion NP
We spent the greater part of last December traveling in Southern Utah. We visited Bryce Canyon NP, then traveled to Zion NP and the area surrounding Springdale. Next we ventured to Moab, where we visited Arches NP and Canyonlands NP. Hope everyone enjoyed our random From The Road emails and thanks for traveling along with us! We will put up a travel album on our web site as soon as we get a little time.
Don’t forget the selfie! That seems to be the latest fad and though irritating at times, the preverbal ‘selfie’ has its appeal. We are no different, I guess. We did make a few obligatory selfies on our last trip. Saw a few people with those selfie sticks. . . some were pointed out car windows or an open moon roof while driving. Really wonder what kind of images they got? Having said all that, and not to be out done, we include a few here for your viewing pleasure. . .
Needless to say, we have quite a bit of film to process and that will take at least another month before we begin to see what we brought back. In a world of instant gratification (keep that selfie stick out of my face!), there are those that can’t understand how anyone could be that patient. This is one of the greatest attributes of LF and ULF film photography. It teaches you patience. You take your time when finding a subject. You spend even more time composing the image. Making that exposure is a one time thing. You make sure. . . then you make doubly sure, before you expose that one sheet of film. You know that you will not even get an inkling of what you captured for quite some time, so you give it your best and hope what you do pays off.
We continue to follow our passion for LF and ULF film photography and do send our deepest heart felt thanks to everyone for your continued support. Each year there seems to be more and more interest in film and is extremely encouraging. Happy New Year to all. Hope everyone has a great 2016!
Agin, Thank You Everyone!
