BWCA: a small film collection


Remember those super sturdy silver bodied Pentax Spotmatic cameras you learned to shoot in high school? I pulled mine out of the closet recently, loaded it with some basic Kodak 400, and dragged it to the BWCA in northern Minnesota. I’ve pieced together a few images from the trip below, all shot on film, as I’m sure you’ll notice with some of my rusty skills.

That said, I love how the flaws tend to add a certain beauty to the images, too. Thanks to RPL in Hollywood for another superb job.

We had a fabulous trip with gorgeous weather, some lucky fishing, and peaceful canoe rides. Our 220+ rod portage was a little rough, but totally worth it.
