Peach Days Car Show on Film – Part 1

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.

Technical Notes:

  • Shot on a Yashica Mat-124G
  • Film: Ilford Delta 400 Professional
  • Developer: Rodinal
  • Scanner: Epson V700
