My summer with Holga Part 2

Ahhh, my very last morning of summer vacation. I can't believe it is already over. I've decided to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and do some blogging. In my pjs. Because this time next week, I'll be longing for next summer while training hundreds of kindergarteners to obey the procedures of the art room. I'm having lunch with my mentor art teacher, then going to the pool with work friends...and tonight I'm going to a friend's birthday party. (shhhhh, its a surprise!)

I thought it would be fun to share some recent Holga pics with you. This is the first roll of black and white I have done in quite a while.

The photos were taken in Las Vegas @Freemont street...mostly at night....the first two however, are @ Death Valley. 

The first two are from Death Valley....I love them! You might remember my original digital pictures from this post. Hope you like these analogues too....

Oh yeah, check out my yummy recipe for Summer Tomatoes over on the Birds of a Feather blog!

The picture of the sign with the girl kicking the leg is perfect! In a technical photographic sense.. the lighting, the contrast and the exposure time is spot on! This is a brilliant image! Well done!!!!

Holga films are SO expensive to process in northern ireland. They have to be sent to england unless you have access to a darkroom.
