I managed to attend a fantastic benefit at the Nikasi Taproom last night; “Pints for a Cause.” The brewery donates a buck from every point sold to a charitable the cause. This night’s cause benefits something near and dear to my heart, analog photography.
The Eugene Darkroom Group is working to open a public darkroom for film photographers. I couldn’t be more excited. The group received some generous donations from local businesses and had a raffle, and a local band played a set outside under the tent.
The Seahorses (I think that’s what they were called) were good sports, and played a great set in the cold weather and a chilly rain. They had a fun pop-rock-n-roll sound. They were an entertaining band to watch. I had never heard of them, or seen any of the members in other bands. They are good musicians.
Funny enough, I’m certain I was the only person taking pictures. Fortunately though, I was shooting film in spirit of the benefit’s theme.
Go check out the Eugene Darkroom Group, kick them down a couple of bones. Analog photography is an endangered art form.
