Two great things I love come together in a single photo — film photography and beach life. Of course, light leaks aren’t usually something you’re excited to see when you get a roll of negatives developed, but sometimes they make happy accidents like this that are kind of cool.
One of my favorite spots along the Oregon coast is Seal Rock, a small town and state park by the same name about 15 minutes south of Newport. Like most of coastal Oregon, Seal Rock is defined by craggy rock formations colliding with the raw power of the North Pacific. Also like most other places along the coast, it’s also completely unique in and of itself, and completely worth visiting. I used to think all beaches are the same, but Oregon broke me of that habit real quick. Each stretch of sand has hidden gems (and sometimes agates) and character all its own.
Don’t let my crappy photo be your truth. Go see for yourself.
