CAMERA MAMIYA 645 PRO FILM KODAK EKTAR 100
Weekend arrives. My wife is working. It's just me and the cat. So I look outside: Overcast skies, no rain. I have about a two-hour window before the sun comes out. So I grab my film gear and head north on Interstate 5. I bring one roll of film: Kodak Ektar 100. Fifteen exposures. That should be enough. My first stop is an automotive shop in Mount Vernon, Wash. Junker cars are parked outside, including the old Chevy below. A week earlier I had shot it with a 35mm Nikon F5. But I was careless, brushing my bare leg against the rusty bumper of a beater behind me (it was shorts weather). It drew blood and I got a tetanus shot the next day. My second trip was scar-free. The barn near Silvana was my next stop. I paused to listen to songbirds. I shot the abandoned tracks near a farm in Stanwood.
