Alchemy

Shooting film -- real 120mm film, developed in chemicals -- with a plastic camera is alchemy. You never know what it will produce. Sometimes the results are magical. Here are my latest efforts with the Holga camera Ashley gave me for my birthday.

  1. it sure is beautiful! i once had my photo done with real camera from 20s (like 1920s not 2020s). Not only I had to sit still for what it felt like ages I could also see my photo being chemically made visible one paper. Real magic!

  2. Those photos are magical, Ally. I hadn't heard of Holga until you mentioned it in your previous post. And look what I found in a second hand shop last weekend: a book on Holga! Of course, I just had to buy it, so thank you! xxx

  3. Do you know the band The Handsome Family? These pictures remind me of their music. So dark and mysterious, and yes, magical.

  4. Thoroughly lovely images. B&W photography will forever resonate with my soul, which, I'm convinced, knows every bit as much as my brain does that it (B&W) was the original palette for this medium.

  9. HI Ally,
    I'm glad to see that you are enjoying your Holga. Great photos!
    The Krappy Camera exhibit at Soho Gallery opens on the 17th. It looks as though it could be an inspiring exhibit.

  10. In this fashion my friend Wesley Virgin's report begins with this SHOCKING and controversial VIDEO.

    As a matter of fact, Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he unveiled hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to get anything they want.

    THESE are the same tactics many celebrities (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become rich and famous.

    You probably know how you only use 10% of your brain.

    That's really because the majority of your BRAINPOWER is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe that expression has even taken place INSIDE OF YOUR very own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind seven years ago, while driving an unlicensed, trash bucket of a car without a license and $3 in his bank account.

    "I'm so frustrated with going through life check to check! When will I become successful?"

    You took part in those thoughts, isn't it right?

    Your very own success story is going to be written. You just need to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.

    Take Action Now!
