Passing Through Nevada City
Fuji X100 | 1/350 sec, f/5, ISO 800
After attending to some important business in Auburn this weekend, we decided to take a 15 minute or so break in Nevada City before heading back to San Francisco. Temperatures in the upper 90s were a stark contrast to the typical cooler summers I’m used to.
Nevada City brings back memories of my childhood. Our family tradition growing up was a camping trip every summer in the Tahoe National forest, and it always included stopping through old little towns like this one on the way back home.
I originally took all of these photos in color using my X100’s standard (Provia) film mode. When I got home however, I realized that this series is just screaming for a black and white conversion:
Unprepared for the high heat, and unable to enter an air-conditioned cafe to cool due to Suki being with us, I lasted about 15 minutes before seeking refuge in the car.

Until next time, Nevada City! Though I have no idea when that will be. The campground we used to go to every year has been closed for several years now…
