In September the weekend following Labor Day, Brigham City Utah celebrates Peach Days. It all started in 1904 as a day-off from the harvest and time to celebrate the the best peaches in Utah. It’s a tradition that brings in around 50,000 people for activities that the top of Utah and Southern Idaho residents look forward to each year.
I had just purchased a mint Yashica Mat-124G medium format camera and wanted to document the car show on film. I’ve never seen so many cars at at car show at once, it was a photographers play ground. I shot about three rolls and wish I had brought more film. I brought my Leica M to capture all the color but really enjoyed capturing it on film. No one noticed when I was shooting with my Leica M but when I pulled out my Yashica it seemed liked everyone stopped to watch as I shot these cars, it’s an attention getter that’s for sure. I stopped counting how many people asked if they still make film the camera and where I get the film processed. The kids love looking through the ground glass, I’m sure they haven’t seen anything like this before.
I will be sharing some color and black and white images from my Leica M soon, but for now enjoy the car show.
