This is Lake Tipsoo, a little lake in the crest of Chinook Pass in the Cascade Mountains. Most of the year it’s covered under several feet of snow, but during a few months in the summer, it all melts. The Alpine meadow that surrounds it thrives, flowers bloom, and people drive from everywhere to take it all in. The views are spectacular. All of Western Washington stretches out on one side, Eastern Washington on the other. Three months later the snows return, the lake gets covered, and the highway is closed until next spring.

I hope this is taken correctly but I’ve been looking at a lot of your images while struck down with covid. I have to say a Lot of hipsta has not done your photographic work justice at all. I’m seeing some stunning imagery which has been leashed by the effects. I understand your experimenting with them but honestly, I’d love to see two photos for every image, a hipsta version AND normal version.

ric alexander don‘t worry, I get what you’re saying, and WOTANICUS thank you for promoting my photo thread (which, honestly, I should be posting to more often.) I’m kinda this way and that about putting the original photo in this thread. I only meant this for a fun photo-a-day thread with an extra degree of difficulty. Including the original photo isn’t a problem, but then again, I should really be posting the originals in my regular photo thread.

Thank you both. Here’s the original photo.

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.)

Gorgeous places. I keep wishing I lived farther north as “all the places” are such a long drive for me. It feels a bit overwhelming to have 4 hours of driving in one day to be able to visit these spots. :(

Honestly, it's worth taking a day to visit some of these places. They're experiences you won't forget.

You all remember the song "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba? It was a massive hit back in 1997. The band ended in 2012 after 30 years together. One of the band members, drummer, guitarist and vocalist Danbert Nobacon, moved to Washington State. He's now a music teacher in the small town of Twisp in the north Cascade Mountains. Every once in a while he comes in to Seattle to perform. This was taken at the Left Bank Book Cooperative in Seattle's Pike Place Market. Not just him, there were several young artists on the bill. He actually came in early to listen to the other singers perform. I was standing next to him the whole time and didn't even realize it until he finally went up to the "stage" aka "corner of the store" to do his set. Nobacon was charming and gracious, very funny with a lot of great stories about the music biz. It was a great time in a very intimate setting.

Although Frutiger from the Basel Hipstapak is a black and white film, it comes with a splash of color inspired by something called the International Type Style. It can be turned off like a border. Susie really blows out the light, but adding the Pop Rox flash gets it under control again. Admittedly, the original photo is already a bit overblown due to harsh light shining on Nobacon's bald head.

I want to live in a town called 'Twisp'. Period.
All right-thinking people do.

I've been fortunate to visit Japan twice, once in 2010, again in 2017. I don't have the money to travel like that. However, my best friend lived and worked in Japan for several years, and he was the one to pay for my trips. This photo is from the more recent visit. We stopped by the Nissan Museum while out for a walk in Yokohama. Actual cars and model cars were on display. I tried the Spiro Gel Flash on it as well, just out of curiosity's sake.
