California V - Muir Woods

I totally forgot to post about Muir Woods! It should have been posted before Yosemite, haha.

It happens, right?! Before late than never!

It is such a beautiful place. You’ll probably remember it from the new Planet of the Apes series. It is Ceasar’s home. But let me tell you, it didn’t remind me of the movie... One scene I remember clearly was James Franco’s character and the girlfriend having a picnic there. But there are MANY signs informing that is forbidden to eat anywhere in the park. Haha. I took a lot of food and a nice towel and all I did was eat an energy bar in the middle of the trail.

Anyway... I just wished we could have spent more time there. We were in a hurry to hit the road to Yosemite... The sun was setting at 5pm, and we didn’t wanna take the road in a complete darkness (which happened anyway). Even though, we had enough time to take one trail and enjoy what nature has to offer. :)

Funny story: I took this Velvia roll before the Wine Tour we did. By the time we were leaving the hotel I mistook this one, that was expired, thinking it was the other Velvia 100 that is not so expired. I only noticed what I did when I got back from the lab. Now I put a yellow mark in all very expired rolls, so I’ll never mistake them again. Haha, living and learning.

  1. Those trees are superb! And what a beautiful day it must have been!
    Too bad you couldn't enjoy a proper picnic there though...

  2. Que lindo! Eu já estou tão habituada a usar filmes fora de validade que já nem sei o que é um filme "em condições" :D

  4. Eu uso bastante tb, rs. Mas mais negativo. Os positivos quando estão fora da validade, gosto de fazer processo cruzado, que era esse o plano pra esse... Hehe

  5. Nunca experimentei processo cruzado, mas depois de ver esses resultados acho que vou experimentar ;) Tenho um fuji sensia 100 fora de validade por revelar há imenso tempo porque tenho estado à espera que o laboratório de fotografia volte a revelar slide no processo "normal", mas já estou cansada de esperar :D

  6. Esses eu revelei em E6 mesmo, porque como estava nos EUA, mandei revelar na Richard Photo Lab, que faz um trabalho belíssimo. Aqui no Brasil não acho muitos lugares que revelam e os poucos que revelam E6 não gostei da qualidade, então acabo mandando Processo Cruzado mesmo, pelo menos fica divertido. Ainda tenho um filme da viagem que ainda não revelei, um Velvia 50 que quero revelar normal e vou mandar pelo correio pra eles. Acaba saindo caro (o serviço já não é muito barato e ainda tem que mandar e pagar pra eles devolverem), mas vale muito a pena. :)
