Taking the Spinner out for a spin

I haven’t used my Spinner camera in a while. No excuses, I just forget about it sometimes.   It’s a fun quirky camera that I bought from Lomography for less than $100. It uses 35mm film. To expose the film, just point the camera, pull the string and watch it spin. I can make a complete 360 degree panorama or something less depending on how far out I pull the string.

So twice this summer I packed the Spinner which is not that easy as it does take up a bit of room in the bag. Here are some photos  I made at the Oregon coast. I try to duck out of the way when I am making a photo but sometimes it’s just impossible.

And here are some photos from ‘Trek in the Park’. This is its 5th and final year to be acted out under the St Johns Bridge. Each year a different Star Trek episode is presented. The acting company had hoped 50 people would show up, but each weekend during August there is a crowd of thousands watching an old episode from the 60’s acted out on the stage.

(I wish I could show these photos much larger than you see here, but there are limitations to what WordPress will allow.)
