Worldly Wonder

The Black Rock Desert
Nevada, USA

The film holders were empty! Can you believe it?! It took me a couple of minutes to load one film holder with only two sheets of film in it. Set up and calculations took a mere minute, [insert sarcasm here] a feat few mortals can accomplish without help from above. Snap, snap...the deed was done.

And then the most awful thing happened. It got better!

Fumbling with the film and holder - this time it took me several minutes to load another two sheets into the film holder (aka-contraptions from hell.) Then I tripped and fell, my nose missing the ground by mere inches.

I rebounded quickly, composed another image and snap, snap.... another deed was done.

Who needs drugs when you’ve got nature’s “Worldly Wonders” around?

What an adrenaline rush!

See Ya On the Trail!
