What I did on my summer vacation 2008: Terrastock

Here are some negative scans of the Terrastock part of our summer vacation. This was all done on consumer brand C41 black and white film and scanned at a CVS in Louisville, Kentucky where the festival took place. They were all taken on my trusty Nikon FA with a 50mm/1.4 or my 24mm/3.8 lens. As you can see I didn't grayscale them before saving. My humble apologies for the lack of continuity.

I have never in my life driven so much. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

The festival made the cover of both alt weeklies in town. This was taken at a nice little cafe called Karma Cafe.

We've known Phil for years. Terrastock is his brainchild. He is absolutely the nicest and smartest guy. Three cheers for Phil.
