Drivin' Around - a Very Cold Winter Day - Holga

Sunny winter days are wonderful as the sky is very blue and the sun reflecting off the white snow makes the day even brighter. It was also very very cold on the day I drove around taking these photos. When I saw a picture I wanted to take I stopped my car, left the engine running, jumped out and quickly snapped a photo. I got back in my car to advance the film and if I wanted another shot in the same location I jumped out again. I shot fujichrome which I had cross processed.

A single lane road goes under the railroad tracks.

Cool looking green door with black mail boxes.

Colorful American Legion Post.

This Sugarhouse is a wonderful place for brunch. The restaurant is located in the "middle of nowhere" which makes it even more fun to eat there.

Cows out in a pasture down the road from the Sugarhouse.

Hi sbk --

Is there a reason why you go for Fujichrome rather than Kodak film? FWIW, prior to switching to digital, I found myself preferring Kodak's matte colors to Fuji's glossy ones.

Hi ytsl,

I like bright vibrant intense colors which border on the garish. Fujichrome, I think, is better for that than Kodak's Ektachrome.
