Among my usual hiking friends I’m usually the one sporting a camera besides the camera on the phone. However it was a very pleasant experience hiking with my friend Jeremy for he brings his digital SLR camera which i might add is an expensive piece of equipment to bring out into nature I feel we do subconsciously learn from each other’s styles of photography. Honestly as there are many things I can say about Jeremy’s photography I do enjoy the time he takes with each of his shots, almost like he is using a film camera. You can take multiple shots with digital but he is diligent with his work.
So I accidentally reeled my film to hard and it snapped from the cartridge cylinder but I was not certain. So I attempted to cover my camera with my jacket and tried to peek inside my camera if the film rolled in or not. To my dismay I accidentally let some light on the film. However after it got developed the shot came out like this which was a pleasant surprise. It kind of gives the spiritual feeling from within the Chapel.
It was my first time in Sedona, actually my first time visiting the state of Arizona. The sun was waning down but I was able to quickly grab a couple of shots with my camera before the sun fully set. You can tell how I was quickly trying to see where to get a good shot at the same time the sun was setting pretty quickly. I combined two of my shots into one, it may have been just 10 minutes apart each shot.
At this point I honestly thought we covered all the hikes that were worth seeing in northern Orange County. This was actually a pretty nice hike, its too bad we were not able to fully explore all the trails this day but we did have a late start. But it was also a great day because we did homemade shabu shabu right after.
Garcia Trail is closed and this trail reminded me a bit of it. It was really steep and we took breaks before the bigger inclines. Especially after doing the other hike in Pasadena earlier this one just felt that much longer.
I really enjoy taking this shots and stitching them. I just find it so interesting the shots are not taken too far apart in time but the angle, the sun, so many factors can change how the photos come out.
Its an interesting friendship with Beverly for we have been friends since college and see each other very sparingly now a days. However despite that when we do see each other we just pick up where we left off.
