Day 8

By Jes • Uncategorized • 27 Aug 2009

Some days, you just need a little inspiration.

One of the things I love doing is taking photos at night (as many of you may have already figured out). Tonight, while looking back through some older images that I will be working with, I found these. They made me smile.

In Minneapolis there is an event called the Luminary Loppet or Tour of Light. It takes place in February. Participants can walk or cross country ski along a course set on the frozen lakes and lined with candles housed in pillars of ice. It was purely an accident that I found this event last year. I will be going back again in 2010.

These photos were most likely taken with my Mamiya C330 (I’m guessing this because it’s a little easier to load film in that one when you have cold fingers, so I probably had that one with me!). Taken with Fuji color slide film.

I am sure you will see these later as a layer in a compliation.
