The famous word of advice in the movie “The Graduate”. Who would have known that advice was probably spot on. Plastics dominate our lives and several of my cameras are made of the stuff. When I go to the beach I take my plastic cameras with their plastic lenses because sand and salt water won’t damage them. I’ve had the $200 repair bill on my husband’s Canon dSLR so I’ve learned. I forget to use my Holga PAN and should take it out more often. the photos are soft due to the plastic lens, but it’s light, easy to use and I don’t worry about it.
Here are some photos I took last week using this panoramic camera:
We went along the Portland waterfront during the last weekend of Portland’s Rose Festival.
We left the waterfront to take a little drive to the Columbia River Gorge:
I finished out my week with a trip to the Oregon coast. We are so lucky to live so close to both the Pacific ocean, the Columbia Gorge and Mt Hood.
Don’t forget that an inexpensive plastic camera can create some great memories.
BTW, I just heard that Oregon is experiencing the driest summer since 1940. I know we need the rain, but these sunny days at the beach are just lovely.
