When the whole sky wanted to be a cloud

There are times when streams become rivers. At times rain is so fine that the whole sky becomes a single cloud that encompasses all that you can see. I was witness to just such occasions this past week. The rains came down for five days straight in my little part of the desert. Not normal. And somewhat destructive. However, there was beauty to be found in all the rain and storminess.
This little scene was in New Harmony, Utah.
This photo was taken with a Spectra camera using Paul Giambarba Edition Image Film.

Recesky on the Road

I love my little plastic self-built wonder. The focus isn't tight or crisp, but sometimes you end up with some wondrous shots. But then again, I like the random distortion and vignettes you get out of toy cameras.
The following are shots I took a month ago while on the road:

St George, Utah temple. If you look closely, you might notice that the foreground contains a fig tree. You can also make out a window and the top details of the temple.
Taken on a Polaroid One camera using Silver Shade film (from The Impossible Project).

November roses

Now that everything is truly dying outside, I like looking at this photo to remind me how lucky I am that I have such a long growing season where I live.
This was taken using a SX 70 model 2 camera, using PX 70 First Flush film.

This shot on the outskirts of St George, Utah. Sometimes I just have to go out in search of new places to photograph. Its nice when those places aren't too far from home.
I used Paul Giambarba Edition Image film purchased from The Impossible Project in a thrifted Spectra camera.
The sky has this lovely ribbon of glowing color along the horizon; I'm so glad that I captured that along with the desert flora in the forefront.

This was taken a few weeks ago, but I thought I'd share it now.
The shot was taken with my Polaroid 430 land camera using expired 690 film.
