Jeep tours 2018, Super 8 edition, Part II

More screenshots from this Summer’s film processing.  I do it as cheaply as possible but the costs do add up.  Leaving the film out of it the total for me was still somewhere around $600 for 30min of footage.

Great memories, though, and hopefully I will get that documentary made at some point.

Jeep tours 2018, Super 8 edition, Part I

This is the remainder of the Super 8 film that I shot, this was Summer of 2018 (plus one roll from last Summer) and I haven’t really used my movie cameras much since.  Processed by Spectra Film and Video, scanning by Nicholas Coyle Film and Video.

A collection of coworkers.

Scout

I just found out one of our drivers died recently.  He was a new guy, started back in 2019.

I don’t know that I have many pictures of him, though there is a 4×5 shot that I took right before we were closing down for COVID-19.  I got it developed but never had a chance to get it scanned.  The pic above was taken in May or June 2020 right after we opened back up after shutdown, the pic below is from Territory Days in 2019, I don’t even know that he had hired on with us yet but he certainly looked the part.


Tri-X in the Spotmatic, but you’ve seen it before so I wasn’t going to tag it again.

RIP, Scout.

Cowboy and horse 4×5

An actual real cowboy, that is, part of a dying breed.  I’m not a real cowboy, I just play one on TV.

He was patriarch of a family of horsewomen that run a stables up in the mountains; when we do horseback riding tours we take them up to his family’s stables.  Sadly he died this Summer and I hardly knew him or got to speak with him.

This is the outtake, the horse was less cooperative than the human.  The more I look at these the more I think that I should print them in a landscape orientation and cut off the top/bottom, they’ll be better framed that way.  I would have done it in camera but I wanted to shoot fast and let the guy get on with his day.

I went back and reviewed my work over the last few years and found several posts with pictures shot up at the stables.  Here they are:

Bowling alley cowboys 4×5

(and cowgirl)

These were from last year’s Christmas party held the end of November, this year at a large place on the North side of Colorado Springs, with bowling, but also laser tag, an arcade, etc.  I told everyone to come dressed in their work outfits and I would take pics, but only a few did which made it into more of a prank than I intended, plus so many people refused to sit still long enough.

Ilford HP5+ pushed to 1600.  The lighting wasn’t terrific and even with the extra 2 stops my shutter speeds were very low.
