"You know we've got to check out at 12..."

Just recently took a quick trip into the (New York) city to participate in the NYRR Women's Mini 10K. It's sort of become an annual girls weekend tradition (whether or not we participate in the race). Either way, I packed my Minolta X-700 and one roll of Fuji Acros 100, determined to shoot some of it. The day after the race, minutes before having to check out of our hotel, I took a quick 10 min to take a few portraits of these lovely ladies.

Wyoming


I think sharing these photos is long overdue.  Fall 2014 in Wyoming (mostly at Grand Teton National Park).  Although the weather was, by usual vacation standards, crappy - chilly, rainy and I didn't even get to see the Tetons in their full glory - it was still a beautiful landscape.  However, it gives me another reason to return!

Also got to shoot some wonderfully expired instant film while I was there...

Great Salt Lake and Salt Flats


Coming from New Jersey, I was stoked to drive out through the Utah desert and then come upon the Bonneville Salt Flats.  First, I stopped at the smelly Great Salt Lake (yeah there was people swimming - guess it has to do when there are no real beaches!). I then continued west, and as I drove down the long, solitary road toward the Salt Flats, I noticed a crew of guys on motorcycles stopped just looking out beyond the Welcome sign...I guess they were as disappointed as I when they saw it covered with water.  Nevertheless, I stuck around for a couple of hours or so and enjoyed the late evening hours there.
