Lighthouses are easy – super distinctive architecture makes the photo part obvious.
This is the Lime Kiln Lighthouse on the west shore of San Juan Island. I’m not sure I like the lines from this angle but I didn’t want to straighten the building or the horizon. I really like what the sky does with the LomoChrome Purple film on a bright day. This was taken with no filter, FWIW. This film can be pushed from 100-400, which is what I shot this at, using my old Canon A1 and a 50mm lens. I’m not sure if the grain pattern would be significantly different at 100, but it’s fun to see it this way. I didn’t retouch this more or less at all.
