photo seven: snapshots from my holga  
I recently bought a Holga camera (promptly named Matilda) that is cheap and plastic and takes fabulous film photos. It takes a lot of experimentation and yeah, the photos are hit-and-miss, but I have so much fun it's totally worth it. Here are the salvageable good ones. :)

First photo! I was even nervous. :p

My friend Katie, who is unfortunately blurry because there are confusing switches. So excuse the photo before this and some after. :)

A friend of mine says she likes this for the contrast ... mm, I don't know.

"I hope I don't fall in..."

Her name is Laura. :)

Denver airport, with blue colorflash (and a light leak).

Downtown Seattle.

Pike's. :)

Jessica, with light leaks. :)

Lauren: "So I'm falling ... ?"

My roommate and I. :)

Pumpkin patch and cannon!

I really want to like this, but the pole. x.x

Lauraaaa. :D


I adore how ghostlike the leaves are in this one.

Ducks, if you can see them. :)

I actually focused correctly. :p

Let me know what you think of them. :)

mood: productive
music: Sarah Slean, Me, I'm a Thief

She was so cute! I told her to slide down, but really slow ... it turned out well, so it was all in good faith. :)

Wow, I love these. There's such a classic quality to them; I love the "I hope I don't fall in" and the one you liked for the ghostlike quality of the leaves the best, but they're all so beautiful.
