Tujunga Wash – blackened from the fires

The Tajunga Wash is an area close to where I live.  It’s combined with Oro Vista Park and Ebey Canyon with housing bordering.

Photo on Friday

I just got a couple of films developed and thought I would share this one with you88800004 (Large)

I took this with my Voigtländer Bessa folding rangefinder on Kodak TMax.

This is the Tajunga Wash or rather the upper end of it just as it leaves the Angeles National Forest.  You might notice that on the hillside to the right is a darker patch; this was where the recent “Creek Fire” came through and was pretty much its far South-Eastern extremity – this is where it stopped about half a mile from my home.  The wash is a major feed into the Los Angeles river.

I am still impressed with the images this camera puts out, I have to get into a habit that I know when I have wound on/shot a frame if I am putting down for any length of time.

I need to use it some more and get a feel for where is excels and what film brings out it’s best.

Sunday ride around the mountain

Landscape week #1

As the Angeles National Forest is now barely a 15 minute drive from my house, I decided to take the Pen-F digital out for some landscapes – it seems rude not to when these views are so close
