Sunset at Mount Shasta, CA, 2014

I think this image has the potential to be one of my favorite shots of the whole trip though of course it’s hard to say when we’re still at it.

Taking an evening walk at sunset by Mount Shasta I noticed two kinds of people. There were most of what I termed ‘yoga people’ but there were also two photographers – easily distinguished from the yoga people by the lack of dreadlocks and the use of shoes and vests 🙂 I noticed what they were shooting and quickly followed their lead before the light was gone with this result.


Amager Beach 18, 2013

One more detour before I return to the Holga lens… Just before we left on vacation to the US, I was hanging out with a friend of mine by the beach one evening. Having young children I don’t often make it out after dinner so I made sure to bring my camera.

My friend wondered why I was shooting into the sun until I showed her on the camera what I captured.
