Brownie Camera Days 2022!
It’s International Brownie Camera Days, 2022! With Fomapan 200 black and white film re-spooled onto a Kodak 620 spool and loaded into the 1952 Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, we head out on an adventure. Discussion about crashing drones, lighthouses, and the 1913 Storm that was the largest single day of deaths on the Great Lakes. Here’s a link to the Wikipedia article about the storm: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Lakes_Storm_of_1913 and here’s the information from the Great lakes Guide: https://greatlakes.guide/ideas/remembering-the-great-lakes-storm-of-1913

The drone footage and photographs of the International Flag Plaza and the Blue Water Bridge are just days before the US/Canada trucker protest caused the bridge to be shut down for a time.
In this video, I talk about the tragic 1913 storm on the Great Lakes that caused many shipwrecks and deaths. My friend, Price Smith, wrote a ghostly song to remember the sailors lost in this terrible storm. His beautiful music video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zejjmoq1ZU and, yes, that’s me playing the part of the ghostly Merchant Marine.
