benrenschen The perseverance of Mother Nature. Seeing these flowers pull through a mountain side of slippery rock at 10,000ft+, it reminds me that when we're dead and gone, nature will claim back the land she's lost to our overpopulation and misuse. What a beautiful sight that would be. Photo taken during our #TelescopePeak ascent. #35mm #filmisnotdead #deathvalley 2mon

benrenschen Hans and his girl. The second before I popped this shot the guy looked right at me. I watched through my lens as he curiously processed the situation - a stranger (me) taking him and his wife's photograph. Coming to terms with his role in what I was doing, he looked back at the mountains behind me. Thank you, sir.

Most people don't actually care if you photograph them. In fact, you can get everyday people to model for you with very little interaction or effort. Just ask with your actions if not your words. You'd be amazed. If they say no, agree to email them the photos later. They'll be grateful and you'll be glad you got the shot.

Moral ---
First inspirations come once in a lifetime. Shoot it when you see it.

benrenschen And in the end you're still my friend at least we did intend for us to work, we didn't break, we didn't burn. We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in. I had to learn what I've got and what I'm not and who I am. -@jason_mraz #35mm #filmisnotdead #deathvalley 2mon

benrenschen I never really got why we're here. Just look at all we build in our lives and we all disappear. A few of us are born with so much while most of us just chasing down a dream that we just can't touch. -soja #35mm #filmisnotdead 2mon
  •   polishpattern Dude I love the editing of the last 10 pics. 2mon
  •   benrenschen @polishpattern thanks dude. Wish I could take credit. They're actually unedited. Bought some 10year expired film a month back and slowly been using it! 2mon
  •   polishpattern Still very cool, I tried to do something like that with an old Polaroid long time ago didn't worked as I wanted to. 2mon
  •   benrenschen Ya it was a total luck of the draw when I started shooting. I say try again! Some of my rolls were pretty rough when processed but there were a few that came out like these! @polishpattern 2mon
