This is Jimi Hendrix's memorial and burial place at the Greenwood Memorial Park Cemetery in Renton WA just a few miles from my home. This is the second place in the cemetery he was buried. Up until almost 20 years ago, Jimi's grave was marked by a simple stone marker in the ground, just like the vast majority of the others buried there. The only problem was that grass couldn't grow around his plot because of how many thousands of visitors he got each year. The Delaunay 1941 film is from the Cubism Snappak, and you can see that Susie's pink streaks are now much blockier.

Last one for today and now I'm all caught up. I got a little arty here. This was from when I worked at a grocery store and photographed items for sales materials. Dixie seems to smooth out Susie's streakiness.

I'm all caught up, so just one today. Djamma Film is from the Iceland-based Höfn Hipstapak. I like the way Djamma's warm mid-tones tame a bit of Susie's pink excesses but also makes the orange fall leaves pop.

Here’s another iconic Seattle eatery: Dick’s Drive-In. Founded in the Wallingford neighborhood in 1954, there are currently eight locations in the region. This is the second Dick’s, opened in 1955 on Broadway on Capitol Hill. There is no drive-thru or indoor seating. Just walk up, order your food and eat it there. There’s always a crowd, but the service is fast and the burgers worth it. Not just a good restaurant, it’s a good restaurant. They offer all employees 401(k) savings, 100% employer paid health insurance, and a $22k college scholarship for anyone who works there for six months or more.

It’s a shame my iPod Touch doesn’t show you just how close and large Mount Rainier actually is in this photo. It’s impressive how much the Dreamy film simply cancels out Susie’s effect. Dreamy is one of the D-series films and lenses that brought back effects from the original and long discontinued Disposable camera.

Just a little pop up street fair in my hometown. Dylan is from the Groupie Snappak. It has a sun-bleached effect that works great here. PopRox is from the same pack. The flash is rather strong since it's meant for indoor lighting, but it's very nice with this well-lit outdoor photo as well.

Yakima Peak is on the crest of the Cascade Mountains, just north of Tipsoo Lake. It's easily accessible via WA Highway 410. Go when the snow has melted and the flowers erupt in an explosion of color during the short summer months. As you can see, the lunar-themed Eagle 69 surrenders to Susie without a fight. The Triple Crown Flash knocks back a bit of Susie's excesses, even revealing a bit of blue color burn down the right side. Pop Rox goes even further, completely eliminating the effects of the Susie filter, so I went with Triple Crown instead. I don't want to eliminate Susie. I want to find interesting ways of using Susie.

What a stunning view. It must be pretty impressive with snow on its shoulders too. I'd like to see it without Susie, just to get the full effect

Just a photo of late afternoon light on a couple of trees. Estrada 83 is from the Jalisco Hipstapak. The water streaks and contrast work well with Susie.

My bedroom window taken early in the morning. I like Etosha from the Windhoek Hipstapak. I find the matte border and extra graininess can add a great vintage feel to a photo.

Wheres #54 ? The halftone screen on this really makes i look like a hard copy vintage print.

Continuing further north in the Cascade Mountains, here’s Mount Baker as seen from Picture Lake. I think you can figure out how the lake got its name. Float is an old favorite from the Shibuya Hipstapak. It’s probably one of the most distinctive films in their entire catalog featuring heavy desaturation and what appears to be a through-the-viewfinder effect. Despite the fact that Float is a film, the effect makes it appear as if like we’re looking through a dirty, cracked and yellowed plastic lens. The effect is retro toy camera cool. Since the Berrypop flash comes in the Shibuya pack, I included a version with that as well. (Not seen is the highway behind me packed with parked cars on both sides of the road and the approximately three dozen people surrounding me taking exactly the same photo.)

What Bill said about the second shot.

And I can see there’s a lot to be said for working patiently through all possible combinations: I’ve never liked the Susie filter, but some of your images have me taking a second look.

Yet another Pak that has passed me by for some reason. Just been back and bought it in lieu of any new content this Friday from Hipsta.

Honestly, Florida Man is one of my least favorite films. I’m somewhat surprised by how much it negates the effects of Susie.
