Notes from a very long drive

A few weeks ago, I drove up to Philadelphia for a portrait shoot for a band. Raleigh to Philly is a very uninspired 7ish hour drive, almost entirely up I-95. Unless you tell the GPS to avoid highways that is. Then it becomes an 11ish hour drive through the swamps of rural eastern North Carolina, up through the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia and then through the Delmarva Peninsula. It’s much longer, but far more interesting trip.

I loaded up on podcasts and set off with no time goal in mind and a plan to stop anywhere that looked interesting. I brought my Leica M6 and Holga 120 Pan loaded with HP5 and, for the first time in a very long time, loaded up some color 35mm in my Bessa R4M. The color is waiting to be developed, until I build up a bigger back log. Lets dive in.
