The Brownie Hawkeye
I found this little box of tricks in an Antiques warehouse called Grandma's Attic in Billings Montana. I loaded it up with 120 film and had great results first time. Of course it helped that I was in one of the most beautiful parts of the country at the time.
The geysers at Yellowstone National Park display vibrant blues and greens contrasted with rusty oranges...a definite inspiration for Fifo Cycle for Spring 2011.
This is a herd of Bison on the horizon about 15 minutes before they came down to the road and crossed on front of our car. They have huge staring eyes and are very forlorn looking, which sometimes fools people into getting too close to them. I had the shocking realization as one male trotted by the car that he could quite easily send us rolling into the valley if he felt so inclined.
We got caught in a thunderstorm while hiking down from Phelps Lake in Jackson Wyoming. Once the rain subsided I caught this little rainbow on the Hawkeye.
I think this is my favorite picture from the roll. The Tetons are in the background and the Hawkeye picked up every color among the wild flowers in the foreground. Just like I hoped it would!
