Pacific Fog

Point Reyes, California….I heard about the overlook, made my way up from San Francisco with cameras in hand including my Soviet-era, Lubitel remake and plenty of film anticipating the view of the Pacific at that edge of the world but I had to use my imagination because the infamous San Fran Fog rolled in. I wasn’t going to leave without a shot, so I climbed a hill in front of this tree, held the twin-lens Lubitel at my waist, and looked down through the lens just when these two young kids walked past.

(Don’t know what a Lubitel is, see below.)

Took the shot with 120 film, scanned to digital, and printed on handmade Amate paper at Indian Hill Imageworks, VT.  This paper has a textual quality that deeply absorbs ink and intensifies the density of the hues.

What Lomo film cameras have you used?
