Those Silent Beaches

Don't be too surprised if the next few posts of mine contain a lot of pictures of the Oregon Coast. On a short camping trip that lasted less than forty-eight hours I ran through about eight rolls of film, most of it with my trusty Mamiya RZ67.

I'm honestly not sure if I made anything earth shattering or worthy of sharing. Landscapes have never been my strongest subject matter but I feel a lot of peace and zen like feelings whenever I do them, so I keep on trying despite my own mediocre results. Strangely, because the landscape itself is so rigid and unmovable, I find it is more difficult to get an image that captures some sort of emotion or humanity to it. Maybe that is why I've always admired photographers like Ansel Adams but never felt compelled to mimic their style at all.
