CAMERA MAMIYA 645 PRO KODAK FILM EKTAR 100, PORTRA 400
Snowmageddon in western Washington has passed. Most of the snow is gone and Seattle has returned to normal: wet, overcast, cold. I responded by getting out with my film gear, the first time in months. I even got a sunny day. The barn above is a 20-minute drive from home. The dead-end road was clear but snow hugged the shoulder. I almost got stuck trying to turn around, the wheels of my Civic spinning in the icy crust. I found the yellow train parked on old tracks next to doormant farm land in Stanwood. I used a step ladder in a back alley to get the shot of the old bowling sign in Marysville. The decor inside also is dated. I'm 63. I'm dated too.
