18 Frames of Salt Lake City

Shot with Superia 400 and my Lomo LC-W

Usually in June I go to Salt Lake City for just over a week to evaluate AP Art portfolios. It's taxing but rewarding work and while the work itself can be absolutely grueling, there is a great feeling of camaraderie amongst all the high school Art teachers and college professors there. We also get to see some truly stunning artwork that we might not otherwise have access to. This year was particularly brutal but we all bent our backs to the plow and managed to finish slightly ahead of time.

I was so burned out at the end of each day that I didn't get to wander far, to be honest, I barely had the will to take photos at all. Nonetheless, I did manage to shoot 3 rolls of film while I was there and one in transit home.

This roll was a roll of Fuji Superia 400. Because I'm an idiot, I always forget how much I enjoy Superia. If it was regularly available it would be one of my favorite color films. I think though that it's been discontinued? In any case, I suspect that the few rolls I have are expired, although I don't know how one would discern that by looking at the canister?

These were shot with my relatively new Lomo LC-W 17mm f/4.5 point and shoot, which as I hoped, travels quite well.

Many of these frames were shot in and around the Salt Palace, the rest were shot in Downtown Salt Lake.

Developing and scanning was by The Darkroom in San Clemente.
