San Francisco Memories – Film Photos from Muir Woods

Here is one last round of photos from my trip to San Francisco! I just picked up the roll of film I shot with my Pentax during our walk through Muir Woods. I love how the photos turned out! Even though the drive up the hill was filled with a few too many twists and turns…winding roads are not my favorite thing…the sight of the giant redwood trees made the trip more than worth it!

I am a tall girl…5’11″…but I felt so teeny tiny looking up at the tops of these massive trees. The hike through Muir Woods was one of my favorite moments of the trip. Talk about time spent appreciating the awe-inspiring beauty of nature. I could have spent the whole day roaming the quiet paths, admiring the moss-covered trunks, and breathing in the cold air. It was really chilly in the woods! A steaming cup of hot cocoa and a berry scone were the perfect reward after the long walk.

I love having these photos to remember the visit! The light streaming through the tree branches was so beautiful that day. I’m glad my camera was able to capture it and bring some of that light all the way home to Dallas. :)

After this trip, I am feeling more inspired than ever to shoot with my film cameras. I have a monthly challenge idea that will help me pick up my Pentax more often. I want to start the challenge in June so I will blog about it in the next few days!

Do you have a film camera? Would you be interested in participating in a photo series?

I hope you are having a great week so far!

    Those are so beautiful! I really want to visit there someday!

  3. Patricia says:

    I actually have a film camera that I haven’t even used the entire first roll of film yet. A photo series might just be the thing to get me to really play around with my film camera.

  4. Sarah Grace says:

    I loved living in San Francisco and I miss the redwoods!
    I just found a great Nikon EM camera set from 1979 at a second hand shop. I really want to get started taking photos with it. This will be my last summer in Alaska so I would love to participate in a photo challenge.

  5. Kate says:

    These are amazing — definitely part of what I love about the Bay Area.
    I have a little wide-angle film camera and I LOVE the photos it produces. I’d be very excited to use it more often as part of a photo project!

  6. beautiful photos! I live in Santa Cruz and don’t go to the woods nearly enough!

  7. I have a film camera, wait, I have about 6 to 10 film cameras! I love using them and am very curious about your photo series. Because of the costs, I don’t use them often right now, which is a shame! I really should…!

  8. Rachel Hope says:

    These photos are gorgeous, I especially like the sea of clovers. I’ve been neglecting my film camera recently, your photo series sounds really interesting! x

  9. hello lovely lady!

    totally gorgeous photos – what an awesome place!

  11. Ahhh this place looks beautiful. I went to Nottingham Forest last year and stayed in a cabin in the middle of the woods. It was an amazing place. I find myself craving it again. The sense of privacy and the feeling of being close to nature is wonderful.

  12. Kat B says:

    I have many film camera’s and love my Diana F+’s.
    So most certainly will join you in the film love challenge.

  13. Rachel E. says:

    I have many film cameras (it’s an addiction, really) – I would love to participate in something!

  14. Trixia says:

    Love the details you captured, there’s just something magical about forests.

    I love film cameras and always feel that I don’t use mine often enough, so a monthly challenge/photo series sounds great!

  15. These are so beautiful! I have a Nikon 35mm and I’m waiting to get my first roll of film back! I would definitely be interested in your photo series!

  16. Hannah. says:

    Wow, these photos are incredible. I always feel at home/most happy being surrounding by trees, this place looks magical. The more photos I see of Sans Fransisco the more I need to go!


  17. As a fellow tall girl (6’1) I love your note about feeling small compared to the trees! This place looks so incredible and magical, it sounds like you had a wonderful time :)

  41. When it comes to our skin, some of us have more of an issue
    than others. There are several strategies that can be used to cope up
    with the emotional stress that comes with this disorder.
    Very prominent swelling and even ulceration of the skin can develop in the most severe cases.
    Ways to enhance your facial skin condition are the following:
    hydrating yourself, having a daily facial regimen, utilizing
    moisturizer having SPF, using a nutritious diet, and having enough rest.
    In 2000 the International Incontinentia Pigmenti Consortium concluded that the condition is caused
    by a genomic rearrangement of the NEMO gene. You can get that terrific skin you ought
    to have if you take action today and do something about this
    skin problem swiftly. You will get facts about how you can quickly deal with Keratosis pilaris here.
    Anyone who has this kind of eczema possibly sees dark patches of skin that itch and appear
    red and swollen. Rosacea conglobata, a severe form
    of the condition that comes with acne conglobata, is very troublesome.
    While some people attempt to appear blase, the white patches on the skin are actually quite hard to ignore especially
    if the person who has them is dark-skinned. Skin Diseases are significant barriers in society,
    because they are visible. Regular dental check-ups for example are essential as is maintaining a good healthy balanced diet.
    A yeast infection is easily treatable with over-the-counter
    or prescription anti-fungal medications. Dry skin can be genetic cause, or it can be done by food, and
    excessive exposure to sun or freezing death.
    If you notice your friend is feeling really miserable, don’t wait.
    Hence, one should stay away from the sun during
    its hottest hours, which are from nine each morning to four o’clock in the
    afternoon, and employ moisturizers with the greatest
    SPF count you could find for more sun protection. Vitamin A compounds are used
    to treat this condition (they usually come in the form of a cream),
    as well as antifungal creams, as this condition can sometimes be
    fungal. The same can be mentioned about the other ‘participants’
    of the list. You’d be dealing with pain, large pustules,
    a burning, itching rash, a sudden onset of redness and puss, and a large portion of your skin covered up by the
    condition in no time at all. Noticed mainly in children less than five
    years old, atopic eczema is the most widespread variety of
    the condition.
