    Testing a Yashica TLR Camera After 55 Years in Storage

    Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.

    Downtown Seattle

    Grunge music, perpetual rain, the foundation of today’s most popular coffee…step foot in downtown Seattle and you’ll find it all, whether it’s coming from the music of street performers, the freshly brewed aromas at Pike Place Market, or the feel of your sweatshirt hood pulled against your face.

    Boeing Factory

    The Boeing Factory is about 25 miles north of Seattle. There is a big visitor centre with lots of bits of planes and interactive displays. A 42 foot tail from a 747 looks huge when you see a person standing beside it, then realize it's just the tail, the scale is impressive. Display sections of the new 787 Dreamliner are nice to see, the windows have a touch-screen shade control which looks very cool. Also inside are TV screens showing the features of the new plane.
