8:45 to Vinalhaven

August 23, 2012













. . . . . . .

Last Sunday morning Ryan, Lynsey and I boarded the 8:45am ferry to Vinalhaven for the day. There was a thick fog hanging over the landing and as the ferry moved away from the shore into the dense blanket of grey & white, it was as if we were entering another world. Just over an hour later, parts of Vinalhaven island appeared through the fog, and then we spotted Lynsey’s grandfather waving to us from their house on the water.  We had doughnuts and coffee and caught up, and then the 3 of us set off for some adventures around the island. I’ll show you more in the coming days – it was a really incredible day.

(I rented a Mamiya 645 and used it to shoot the photos above – I’m a big fan)

    Wow. These shots are beautiful, B, and they feel so Scandinavian.
    I want to go there.

    Here in Italy it’s too dang hot. It makes you sweat even if you don’t move at all. Craving for that fog ;-)

    Really nice photographs that capture the mood and the feeling of being there. As I look across a road and a car-park to the Singapore skyline with the sun just peeping above the high rises I long for the feel of the earth under my feet and the subtle blanket of mist against my face.

    So pretty! Ad I’m excited to hear they are from Mamiya, because I just purchased myself a Mamiya 645 – haven’t developed my first roll from it yet.

    I agree with Charlotte: beautiful photos!

    Sounds like the makings of a wonderful adventure. Love the photos – just beautiful. The fog is so perfect.

    Oh, that fog. I miss fog. And ahhh isn’t the Mamiya amazing?? If I were rich I’d only shoot with it, but oof – film price, yikes. I have a 120 and 220 back and the 220 is so great for not having to re-load so often, but criminy, $35 a roll when all is said and done. Plus it’s not exactly a light little camera.

    these photos are so good. keep looking at the one with the ropes.

    fog, weathered shingles, boats, 120 film…all are some of my absolute favorite things.

    wow, i’ve got so much catching-up to do – way behind on my reading.

    these are very special, the fog is magic. great to see you shooting with a mamiya 645, everything seems very crisp. just curious: do you prefer this frame format to the hasselblad square?

    Gah, you’ve tipped me over the edge – definitely want to get my hands on a Mamiya 645 now.
