These are two very useful accessories that are now always in my bag whenever I go out on a photo trip.
I never leave home without either a pencil (or pen) and gaffer tape. They have always been a part of my camera kit when going out to take pictures. But recently I was going on an extended trip (2 weeks) and I found that I needed to lighten my load. I didn’t want to carry a roll of tape, so I had to find a way to bring my tape without adding weight.
My solution was to cut 4 or 5 pieces of tape off of the roll and wrap them around a pencil that is always in my bag. Perfect solution. I would have my pencil, but would also have my tape in case I needed to re-tape my Holga or anything else on my trip.
This travel story re-imagines my brief stop at the Frontier Bar in Dunkirk, Montana in 1957. I photographed images found on the internet to reconstruct a visual context of our road trip, as all the negatives and color slides are lost.
