The poppies were open at the Agness post office. The few folks I met were less so.
One of my aims was to hike the Lower Rogue trail, but it is 11 miles one way. I tried to go halfway from both directions, but with the car trouble
Finally on the trail:
That shot was a reference to other photographs and ideas I’ve had. From November 2010 one day way up Euchre Creek:
11/02/10 blog excerpt: There was a twin cypress tree at my dad’s place as a kid. I went in for this shot, referencing this shot from Reno and also this shot from Tennessee. But I walked around behind and with the flash on, surprised myself.
I lagged getting the film processed, but there were reasons. This roll was cursed: I broke it out of the canister at the last frame. After successfully getting out using a film changing bag, there was a delay at the lab. I always get my slide film uncut and unmounted, but something went wrong this time (I probably forgot). I prefer the strip of film to the slide mounts. I will have to be more careful because this last frame did not return and the word is, lost forever. It was a nice shot. At least I have a low-res scan for my efforts. I held up a circular polarizer and UV filter in front of the Summitar lens (it takes weird slip on filters I don’t have).
