Ann Arbor Art Fair. If there is ever a time to use a camera like the Trip 35, that is it. We get about half a million people in the city over the course of 4 days, and you can't escape the Art Fair. This year is the first time I have gone to work without seeing any of it, as my workplace is now 5 miles from campus. So, I went on a Saturday morning hoping to shoot some really slow film (discussed here), but also brought the Trip 35 for street shooting.
Then in August, a few shots from the beach at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The storms a few days prior had sent waves far up on the beach, and the wave forms were still there in the sand, which I found to be really cool abstracts.
While the Trip 35 can't do everything, what it does do under good conditions really points out how good a little camera it is. No batteries. Just pop in a roll of film and you are good to go. One last shot, of Mike Raso pondering his TLR at a Film Photography Project podcast taping session. We have a good time doing these. This was the first time I had used a flash with the Trip 35, and am pleased that it worked quite well.
As I went through these images, it is clear that the Trip 35 really lived up to its name -- it went on a lot of trips, with just one roll of film.
