I’ve broken out my old Holga camera these days and have been wandering around in the wild beautiful places near where I live.
I took my first roll of film right in my backyard, quite literally—these are the views of the natural space right by my house, where I take my dog walking in the mornings and afternoons. I walk out my door and across the parking lot and street, and this is where I am.
It takes my breath away regularly. I love the expanses of wild grasses and the light glowing across the fields and mountains in the morning and evening. I took these pictures one morning in June.
I’ve been spending my summer weekends wandering the high mountains near here and have taken two other (black & white) rolls of film up there. I’m hoping to get to a darkroom soon and print some up and share them with you. It is so phenomenally beautiful up there, and I have been loving nothing better than to spend days walking and looking. There’s something so basic about it, and the landscape above tree-line is one of my favorites—it’s so open and sparse; just rocks and tiny plants right up against the sky.
I hope you’ve been finding some time to spend somewhere beautiful! Happy wonder-filled day!
