Views at the Marina (620 film)

Marina View 1

These photos were taken with a “new camera”: a Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20 that a friend gave to me. The camera was made from 1940 to 1954 and it was his mother’s first camera. The Six-20 part of the name reflects the film used. 620 film is currently available as a handrolled option. The 620 film spool is a slightly different size than the more standard 120… but it is close enough to the right size to allow the film to be unwound from a roll of 120 and wound onto a 620 spool (in the dark, of course). Thankfully, there are companies that will do that for you these days. This was Kodak Portra 400.

Shown are views of the Point Wilson Marina in Port Townsend. It is currently under renovation-construction with some dredging and additional work to replace some of the infrastructure. There’s usually lots of boats … so sorta strange to see it empty.

    1. I like the colors of Portra 400 a lot.
      I’ve also shot some 35mm and 120 …
      I like how shooting film slows you down and makes you pay more attention
      It carries over to when you go back to digital

  1. I especially like Marina View 1, the blue of the water is amazing! I also like the composition.
