On the beach (sand in the sprockets)

There aren’t really any sprockets if you use 120 film, of course. And I took a lot more photos with my phone than with my bright red  plastic Holga. But if there were sprocket holes in the film in the Holga, then there would have been sand. That’s the kind of look I was after. That’s the kind of day that it was.

An autumn afternoon, a family (us) photographing each other for posterity. Or maybe because that’s just what one does to make a wilderness seem part of our digitised life, so we don’t feel that we’ve walked off the grid, out of the net. Or maybe art is a form of addiction.

Anyway, family photos today, the familiar. And  one shot of strangers, who thought I was stranger still.

And no more words.

    Love the one of all the grown ups in their deck chairs on the beach.. very cool that one.. looks like you all had a great time! c

    • They were the strangers, backpackers from Europe. It was low tide and they were ensconced near the water a long way from annyone else. They were a bit confused when I walked all the way up to them, but good sports. The place must have seemed like another world to them.

  3. LOVE your photos, all of them, but especially the last one, it is truly gorgeous!
