For the past 5 years I wake up most summer mornings and ride my bicycle 5 miles to nearby Mitch Park, where I run, walk, swim at the YMCA, or ride a bit more. I have even become the “Local Legend” in Strava for a segment. I decided this morning to bring my Pentax 67 medium-format film camera and take photos of some of the people I see walking and running the trails. I asked each person if they minded I take their photo. Most were agreeable, some were not. I developed these at home in my kitchen sink and wet-scanned them on my Epson Perfection 750 Pro film scanner. I hope to add a few more to this collection.
