Looking for pumpkins

Ron and I made a trip to Sauvie Island to check out the Autumn color, but few trees had changed color. It was a beautiful sunny day so we spent the afternoon driving around the island stopping at a few pumpkins patches and roadside displays. I took my Hasselblad and my Holga PAN.

I forget how much I like the Holga panoramic camera. I really need to use it more often.

But there is nothing like my Hasselblad. Of all my film cameras I would say it is my favorite. I really like the square format and the lovely shallow depth of field I can get with this sturdy camera. Of course there is nothing like the ‘ker-plunk’ sound the camera makes when I push that shutter button.
