Marks and I set out early yesterday morning for a full day of photography. Cameras all loaded with film. Both of us in our “snake boots” (yes you have to wear those if you’re going to venture off the beaten path here).
The weather forecast called for a 20% chance of rain. Yes, those weather forecasters should be shot on sight!!! I guess I should have checked it out myself instead of relying on them. My mistake.
Within a very short space of time the sky turned a rather ominous shade of dark grey. Looked like embedded thunderstorms and plenty of the wet stuff was going to be the order of the day. It ended up being a wash out for photography. The rain was just too heavy for any kind of medium format work. I did manage to take 7 out of 12 frames on the Holga, dodging in between the rain drops and one time getting soaked. I hear the “drowned rat” look is the “new cool”. Off course, that means the remaining film is going to be awaiting the next trip.
Hopefully we will get out within the next couple of days. As for yesterday, I’m sorry to report that there aren’t any new photography images to post. I have a few taken with the cell phone (or little scanner as I like to refer to it) that show the weather. Not great images but consider the fact that they were “cell phone images”. You get the idea.
