Amid all of the wet green of the Hoh, there were numerous pockets of these red ferns. A lot of speculation was made over whether or not these ferns were turning color in the fall, or whether or not they were just red ferns. I still have no idea, though it is worth noting that there were many, many green ferns, so fall color doesn’t seem that logical. 

Either way, it added nice diversity to the sea of endless green. 


A week or so ago, I was browsing Flickr when I came upon photos shot on Fuji Velvia film, with nothing other than the Yashicamat 124G camera. I loved the look of them so much that I decided it was time for me to branch out from negative film and my beloved Kodak Portra VC. I’ve never shot slide film before, and I’ve certainly never shot Velvia, so I was intrigued by the possibilities of this high contrast and richly saturated beautiful film. I picked up 5 rolls of Portra 100F before heading to a pumpkin farm yesterday on my day off, and I shot 3 (along with a partial roll of Portra). I feel confident with that the results are going to be good. Hopefully, I’ll have slides back in a week. Stay tuned.
