It was pretty dark and pretty breezy (real deal whitecaps just out of the frame). These guys were digging hard to get around Bates Island. The immersion suits may have been overkill, or, ahhh, paddling around mid-October without them may have been fool hardy.

I’ve gotten into the habit of shooting slide film on camping trips.

A blast from the past, some spooky stuff. Carlsbad caverns in 2015.

More than anything, this was an experiment to see if Delta 3200 could do it. It kinda could.

*Let me head you freaks off at the pass. Yeah, we knowww, Delta 3200 has a true ISO rating of 1000…blah blah blah…I metered at 6400 and told the lab to push it one stop. It’s. That. Simple.

Serious note: shoot the stuff at 800 if ya can. Great for indoor portraits.
