I Stand Alone

Kodak Ektar 100, 1956 Minolta Autocord MXS

 

You have no idea what I had to go through to get this shot. The tide was rising and the waves kept coming higher and higher up the beach. I wanted to get nice and close to the rock, but my only chance was when each wave receded. This gave me about 5 to 10 seconds to get in there before the next one rolled in. I had to run up and focus and try to remember my spot via a rock in the sand. Then I had to run back out and take the shot while hoping my little rock-marker didn't move too much from the last wave.

 

Those old manual TLR's aren't exactly a quick shot.
