Travel: Santa Rosa Beach

The Big Eclipse of 2017 found me at Santa Rosa Beach! While we weren’t in the totality plane, it was still pretty bizarre seeing the beach at 85%! The seagulls were starting to roost, and you could remove sunglasses and not be blinded by the sand. I was super excited that my image of the eclipse turned out (as I just held the protective glasses in front of the lens of my camera and pointed up, ensuring I wasn’t looking directly at it).

These were shot with a Canon Sure Shot WP-1 waterproof 35mm film camera. I love it so much! It’s come along all of our kayaking and beach trips! I love how when it’s super humid, the images have a gloooow to them! It’s akin to the Diana or Brownie styles!
