26 Instax Packs - #16 - Fuji Instax Black Frame in Diana F+ with Lomography Instant Back. Shot around Lake Marburg and Downtown Hanover.
26 Instax Packs - #14 - Alice in Wonderland Instax frame in Lomo'Instant Automat. Brenda and I drove out to Gathland State Park near Burkittsville, Maryland to visit on a Sunday afternoon. It was pretty hot that day, and the bugs were relentless, even after spraying ourselves with Off! I wanted to see the ruins and former estate of war correspondent George Alfred Townsend. We visited the museum there - what remains of the main house from the estate. The War Correspondents Memorial is a pretty impressive entrance to the park. The Appalachian Trail passes through the park, though is was much too hot for us to venture out onto it.
After visiting the park, we drove through the small village of Burkittsville, seeing many of the homes adorned with Rainbow Pride flags. It was a nice Sunday drive with a stop on the way home for lunch at Ledo's Pizza in Frederick.
26 Instax Packs - #13 - Pikachu / Pokemon Instax Mini Frame in Lomo'Instant Automat camera. It was Father's Day, so Brenda and I picked up my stepfather to take him to breakfast and go for a ride in search of unexplored areas of the Gettysburg Battlefield. I've lived in Hanover since 1990 and visited Gettysburg numerous times over the years with my family and more recently photographing different parts of the landscape. I've always been drawn to the boulders strewn about the battlefield and surrounding areas, and there is a special tree at Devil's Den that I like to photograph and sketch. Every now and then, Brenda and I will discover a new part of Gettysburg on one of our drives. I recently saw photos from another photographer of the Rose Farm barn ruins, but I was not familiar with that area of the battlefield, so it was this that we sought out to discover on our Father's Day drive.
It was a much sunnier day than the last time I shot with this camera, so the outdoor photos turned out much brighter.
26 Instax Packs - #12 - One Piece Instax Mini Frame in Lomo'Instant Automat camera. It was an overcast day at Evergreen Cemetery in Gettysburg, PA, just on the verge of rain. These photos came out very dark, I probably should have used the +1 exposure compensation on the camera. But maybe, the darkness contributes to the mood. I missed the framing a little on the closeup shots, but I usually just point the Automat in the general direction of what I'm shooting using the focusing distance recommendation for the closeup lens. I'm not familiar with One Piece, which is apparently an Anime Show featuring a pirate, but I liked the little skull and crossbones on the packaging when I saw it on ebay.
26 Instax Packs - #3 - Diana F+ with Instax Back using Fuji Instax Mini Monochrome at Gettysburg National Military Park in early evening. The exposure was a bit unpredictable and hard to get right, but there are interesting effects on the corners of some of the prints.
