It always seems like I take too many pictures when we are in St. Michaels. It's such a dear and photogenic place that I end up shooting roll after roll of film. So, for our latest weekend trip to St. Michaels I decided to limit myself to my 4x5 large format camera and a bagful of film holders. I loaded my 10 film holders with Fuji Provia 100 slide film, which meant I could only take 20 photos for the whole weekend. I did use all 10 film holders, but I like the way it limited me to essentially one afternoon shoot and a pre-dawn photo run along US 50. That allowed me to spend the rest of the time goofing off and enjoying the weekend.
I just got my slides back this afternoon, but I've identified my two favorite shots from the weekend. The first is from a used boat dealership (American Outboard) on Hwy 50 East and the second is the Traveler's Rest Road sign on St. Michaels Road.
Both photos were taken with the Toyo 45AII 4x5 field camera and Schneider 210mm f5.6 lens.
