Leftover Photos From Our Southwest US Vacation

On our recent trip to the US Southwest, I shot close to 20 rolls of medium format film and only 1.5 rolls of 35mm. Below are the last shots from the half roll of AgfaPhoto APX 100 on our trip. Both from Bryce Canyon and Death Valley. Camera: Voigtlander Bessa R3M Lens: Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm…

Death Valley National Park

Day 6 After another crappy breakfast at the motel in Bryce, we started our 7 hour drive through 4 states to reach Death Valley National Park in California.

2015 Family Vacation
