In late November and early December, I spent two weeks on Maui, Hawaii.  The travel days were long (over 24 hours between departure and arrival in both cases), but the trip was well worth it!  Maui is a very diverse location, with rain and cloud forests, barren volcanic craters, grasslands, beaches and desert-like areas all within a short drive of each other!  This provided many interesting landscape photography opportunities.  I used a mix of 35mm and 120 film, as well as digital to photograph the island, and I will be posting some of the film results first.  

In an attempt to reduce the amount of X-ray exposure to my film, I decided to attempt to get most of my film upon arrival in Maui.  This proved to be more challenging than expected, as the only chain of camera stores on the island didn't have any film in stock.  I was able to find a store that had Fujicolor 200 on sale for just over $1/roll, so I bought 8 rolls, as well as having a roll of Velvia 50 already in my Yashica Mat 124G.  As the name suggests, Fujicolor 200 is a colour film, but I mostly shot it with the intention of converting to B&W upon returning home.
