alleys and trash

I seem to be attracted to wondering down alleys and making photos of whatever I find. I especially enjoy visiting small towns throughout the Pacific Northwest. My husband and I returned to Cottage Grove, Oregon, to visit a favorite antique store. The store was closed so we wandered the streets and alleys. Almost all the stores were closed that day but the alleys were ripe for photography.

Cottage Grove is famous for its role in the last scenes of the movie “Animal House” when the parade and mayhem bring the movie to its close. The college scenes were shot at my alma mater, University of Oregon in Eugene.

All these photos were taken with my 1976 Hasselblad 500Cm and Ilford 125 film. I developed the film at home using Ilfosol and scanned on an Epson V700.

I love living in the Pacific Northwest being close to the mountains and the ocean. My hobbies include photography, travel, reading, biking, walking and gardening. I am an Anglophile at heart and try to visit the UK often. My camera goes everywhere with me.
