Long Exposure Self Portrait

I’ll remember the beginning, middle, and end. I’ll remember the best parts and the worst, but I take photographs to remember the inbetween.

Me, Photographed by Jake Clark

Here’s some recent landscape and nature shots. I’ve been either hiking or biking every day this week, and these are some of my favorites so far. I hope you enjoy :)

Nature Study

This was a quick, fun little project. I took apart this Yashica MG-1 (1975 model) for a friend. It had stopped working recently and he wanted me to take a look at it and it had lots of bad wires and a stuck shutter. To un-stick the shutter, I had to take the whole lens block off from the body, and reset and oil it, then the wiring was a mess so I put all new wires in and soldered them better than the originals. I bet this camera will work for another 39 years.

Sometimes the world is really loud and it’s important to get away from everything for awhile.
