Cape Dissappointment Lighthouse

Reality So Subtle

Cape D'Light

Zero 2000

As I was editing my photos from our visit to Cape Disappointment last summer I remembered that I took the same shot of the lighthouse with both of the cameras I brought, my Zero 2000 and my Reality So Subtle. I thought it would be interesting to compare the shots side by side. Looking at the photos, I see that in between shots a car must have pulled up the road and parked in front of the lighthouse.

For both cameras I used Ektar and the exposure time was around a second.

A very Holga Christmas



My next Holga image is from my first roll of B&W through my Holga. Also: it was shot on Christmas of 2011, so I thought it was appropriate to post it today.

Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful readers! Thank you for making this blogging thing fun. I really have enjoyed connecting with all of you.

Stoked! Raf and I will be going to Cape Disappointment (on the Washington coast) next week while i will be on vacation. I think I might see if we can stay a night in Long Beach, as well.

I have fond memories of Long Beach. We stayed there when I was a kid. I remember visiting  Marsh’s Free Museum and seeing the Jake, the Alligator Man.  I was totally fascinated by this horrific thing. So fascinated that I bought a postcard that featured the alligator man and brought it to show-and-tell at school the next week. God. It embarrasses me to think about what my teacher must have thought of me when I brought in a picture of this totally horrific looking creature in to school to show all of the other children.
