My Summer With Holga

 When I travel, Holga is always with me. She's capable of magic, enhanced by the anticipation that comes from waiting weeks for her photographs to arrive. (Regular readers know who Holga is. Those of you who don't can click on the link.)

Here are some images created this Summer. The first is beautiful Keuka Lake, one of the Finger Lakes in upstate New York. The second is Long Island's majestic Big Duck who lures me back time and time again. 

The third was taken at a local park I wasn't aware of until my friend Emily brought me there last month. She used to visit it as a child. The pandemic caused Emily to look for someplace we could have an outdoor picnic and this bucolic site fit the bill. That delightful outing was my first -- first! -- social event since the Coronavirus arrived. 


  1. Holga takes such gorgeous pictures. The interplay of light and shadow in these is just divine.

    Congrats on your first social event! I know it won't be the last. :)

  2. Loving these shots- Holga always captures the best! :)

  3. Beautiful photos! It's so good to get out and enjoy some time with friends after having been cooped up in social distancing.

  4. These are awesome! I'm glad you got to go out for a little too.

  5. I'm definitely a fan of Holga! That duck is hilarious. Isn't it lovely to meet friends after being cooped up for so long? We do seem to appreciate these things more! xxx

  6. Ah, the slow pace and subtle mystery of old fashioned cameras.
    Holga is a gem!
    I had my first guest to our home recently. It was fun, lovely and terrifying!

    1. As counter-intuitive as it sounds, I like waiting to see how my photos came out. It adds drama to the experience.

  7. Congrats on a great trip! I had my first day back at work in months.

  8. Ooooh, so nice to see Emily! I hope you had a lovely time!
    Goodness, those photos have drama! I'm a bit scared of the giant bird!
