A Visit to Heart Mountain

Returning from our tour of Yellowstone, we stopped at the Heart Mountain Internment Camp.  This is the third one that I have visited, and as it turns out my Husband's Family knows Japanese Americans that were held here.

But with all of the Hate Spewing forth on Twitter (which sometimes I get sucked into responding to).  I wanted to take a moment of reflection.  So for the next few days, we look at scenes from Heart Mountain:

XD-11 May be the Culprit

This one interesting image from P30 second roll tells the tale and shows some promise:

Just reviewed some 35mm  Portra 160 that I shot on our Road Trip and it seems to have some similar exposure problems as the Film Ferrania.  So I'm concluding that P30 deserves another chance in another camera, and the XD-11 may be going in for maintenance.

I'll give Film Ferrania P30 one more test in the X-700 that I used for the Eclipse.  I know that it is working properly:

Walker Ranch: 35 mm

Finishing up the week with a few exterior shots in 35 mm.  We start with an Overview shot.  The White house on the right is the 'modern' ranch house.  It is now the residence of the Open Space Chief Ranger.  That's partly why access to this site is restricted.  But having someone on sie also protects from vandalism.

And the back side of the original Homestead House with our guide for scale:

Two images of Donald setting up his shots:

The Hay Barn, with detail of the Door.

Finally, some roof damage on the Hay Barn addition.

This will post as Week #35 on the 52 Rolls Project.
