I shot this test roll in the afternoon while I waited for the tide to drop at Duranbah. The camera’s a Yashica Minister 700. It’s a Rangefinder. I’d never shot with a rangefinder before. Lining up that yellow blob to focus. Hard to do with natural patterns, easier with hard edged structures and people. It felt strange. With no light-meter I guessed exposures. I’m happy with how it all came out. It felt good to shoot film. The mystery.
How good is that Valiant?
“You heading out?”
Nah I was on it earlier, too crowded now.
“Tide must have been pretty low…”
Yeeaaaaaaaap, she was a little hairy but I’d rather that than battle for scraps with those kooks
“Weren’t you at The Peak yesterday evening”
ohhh, might have been…
“I knew it. You were the scrub on the Mal! You rode a wave right into the ledge! The guy who kept trippin’ on his booties when he got up. ”
Aww… nope, not me mate.
Nope. I was out here….
Pulling in under the rock ledge.
Cos it was so dry.
The barrels I got.
You don’t wanna know.
