Winter with the Rolleiflex / by Jana Uyeda

This winter has been particularly harsh in much of the US, with snow storms and a polar vortex bringing temperatures 20-30 degrees lower than average for this time of year.  Though I can't imagine living through sub-zero temperatures, the images of cities frozen in ice have been amazingly beautiful. The Guardian posted one of my favorite gallery of images: US polar vortex: the best images.

Seattle has thankfully been safe from these extreme conditions but I did want to shoot a few rolls of Winter season in Washington State, so I headed out for Lake Easton. I brought my ONDU 6x12 and Rolleiflex camera and a few rolls of film then spent some time walking out to make an image then running directly back to my car to warm up. It was only 20 degrees, but I was freezing. I am working on developing, scanning and posting images from my visit, so while I'm getting that work done, here's a quick shot from the Rolleiflex of Lake Easton State Park. 

Mahalo and stay warm!
