    Anybody recognize this location?

    Attached are three photos that came off a roll of early (based on the film cassette) Kodak Gold 100 C41 film that was in the Pentax S2 Super I picked up at an antique shop in Boone, NC last year.

    I'm pretty sure this is somewhere on the west coast of North America, but I'd love to know if anybody recognizes the exact place.

    I developed this roll in Caffenol-C just for kicks, now I'm wishing I had taken it to a color lab. I have no idea how it was stored or how old it really is, but based on the film I'd say early 90's at most.

    It might be Ruby Beach, WA. Ruby has several openings like those shown; however, I can't find any pictures of them that I can compare. This is certainly a beach that a lot of tourists visit every year.

    Definetly looks like the Olympic Pennisula (WA) to me. Probably Rialto Beach and Hole-in-the-all area. Those are the most commonly visisted.

    Could also be any of a number of beaches on Northern California coast, north of Pt. Reyes I'd think. Reminds me of the area called the Lost Coast.

    Person's clothes, etc. looks like early 90s, too.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I'm not sure, could there be some light leaks there? Excenllant shots none the less.

    Definitely some light leaks and other artifacts (maybe some from my slap-dash Caffenol developing). The film is years old, certainly way past expired, and sat around an antique shop for who knows how long. There are only five complete frames, then a few that suggest that the camera was toyed with inexpertly (shutter tripped with no lens on, for example). The back on the camera doesn't close quite completely either, and this might have contributed to the light leaks.

    Anyway they aren't my photos! I'm just wondering where they were taken. Thanks for the suggestions on the place, everyone. I happen to know that the previous owner lived in the LA area in the late 1960's so that's my main reason for thinking this is the west coast. It reminds me a little of Yaquina Head and Agate Beach, near Newport, OR but it's not exactly the same.
