Saint Helens

Traveling with some black and white film gives me a different perspective then shooting digital color. The landscapes out west sometimes just look great at angles in black and white and detail and shadows just get drawn out more. The volcano was a lot taller but a lot of its top is gone since the eruption. Closer to the volcano you can see the difference in the landscape, no more tall trees but small plants and pumice stone areas.

A time at Black Rock

It is hiking time. Hiking is really something that I enjoy and of course capturing photos. Black Rock is a short hike within Shenandoah National Park. It was something to relax on, easy walk, short and a place to sit and have a 300 degree view.

Provia Graffiti

I like walking down some of the alley ways in Richmond and I usually come across some graffiti and also sticker.s Richmond loves stickers so I have noticed. Here is some graffiti on Provia 400X. Taken with a Vogitlander Bessa R4M with a 21mm f4 lens. 88610030

Some graffiti is just plain like above but on a bright color wall or door.

Provia Azalea Garen

There was still some color over at the Bryan Park Azalea garden in the winter. I had to get some Provia 400X before they were sold out since I never shot with it before. Loved the colors with it, not as vivid as Veliva but nice. The pond as covered in algae and the fountain was off.
