Road trips just feel like film to me. I finally got my scans back last night, so I’m happy to share some shots from my journey from AZ to IL. The black and white are all 35mm on an Olympus OM-2 with Tri-X film. The color are all 120mm on a Contax 645 with both Ektar 100 and Fuji 400h film. Let’s do this!
The first night, I stayed in Hollbrook, AZ after dodging giant moonlit elk on the road from Phoenix. I pulled over randomly because I liked the clouds and ended up at the Continental Divide! Oh and then it snowed somewhere between Albuquerque and Denver… After some great coffee at Crema in Denver, I explored a bit. I shot a ton of instax “polaroids” along the way. I lined them up on my dash to have something prettier than Nebraska to look at on my way home. (no offense Nebraska…ok maybe a little offense) Pulled off on a whim to check out the original Pony Express station!
