I just spent the better part of a week at Bodie SHP helping out and working on a historic preservation project with @historicorps pointing brick and rehabbing a historic chimney on a railroad depot. Historicorps is a really solid outfit made of volunteers working with master craftsman to preserve resources in Americas public lands. The idea of volunteers with all sorts of backgrounds and skill sets working together, trading ideas and building things in adverse conditions was a really valuable experience and gave me some good new perspectives. .
The whole time there,it seemed a storm was on its way, everyday you'd wake up to a fresh dusting of snow. The sky stretched but never broke open and it seemed like I just made it out into a window of sun before I left. When I got back into town I stoped by the film shop to drop off a roll of film and asked someone inside how their day was, and they said, 'it's friday.' I handed over my film to the manager Sohee and asked how her day was, Sohee said 'Good, and it doesn't even need to be Friday. #35mm
Using up old film and the envelopes they came in. PLUS I've got enough 1950s black and white photos to do two more beach ones like the girl with her dog. Those will be available on my @bluethumbart page First in, best dressed.

Kobo Daishi, looking nearly real.
Apparently, the real Kobo Daishi is alive and well (despite having died a casual millennia ago) and in meditation in a hidden location on Koya-san.
