Nightlife in Lee Vining

Lee Vining

Nights in Lee Vining are pretty quiet all year long, but as the tourist season winds down in mid-October, it gets noticeably even quieter.

Panum Crater Sunset

Panum Crater at sunset

Panum Crater, on the south side of Mono Lake, at the north end of Mono Craters, is one of the newest additions to the volcanic landscape of the American west (under 700 years old). The smooth rim of the crater and the jagged plug in the middle offer great views in all directions. Sunset is a nice time to be there.

Bodie, on Film for a Change

I haven’t shot film at Bodie in, well, decades. So, with a recently acquired YashikaMat EM, I wanted to see how a different camera (a twin lens reflex so very different from a DSLR, mirrorless Fuji, Light L-16, or iPhone) would change how I see and what images I make at Bodie.

Composing backwards and leveling the horizon in reverse is challenging, as is capturing but not over-correcting the personality of a color film (expired Portra 400 and fresh Portra 160) in a scan. Scanning black & white (expired BW400CN) was a little easier.
