My Holga Week Entries

Last week was Holga Week, a time when crazy photographers use cheap, old cameras to take pictures. Did I mention the cameras are completely plastic and barely functional? That's Holga

I find the deficiencies of the camera increase the challenge of getting good photos. And I enjoy a challenge.

We're entering our pictures in friendly competition. Here are my submissions. Do any appeal to you?

  1. I like the first one best with its sinuous dance. You like round things! Well done, they're all great. Xo JJ

  5. They're all great pics, but the first one is definitely wall hanging worthy.

    (I feel like i should rename my car Holga - "barely functional!" Lol)

    Great reflection capture on the last image.

  8. The top one is my favourite, just because I like the pattern repetition and the sinuous shape. These are gorgeous pictures, Ally!

    PS - Thank you for the Hallowe'en card! It brought a smile to my face!

  9. I also like the first one best. The round shapes in rows look like alien eggs. Kind of ominous.

  10. Great shots! I've always fancied picking up a Lomography camera and having a go.

  11. I love these artistic BW photos. It is great you're up to the challenge of working with a low quality cam like Holga.

  12. They're all awesome but the third one is my favorite. I like the repeated reflections!

  13. These are marvellous, Ally! I especially like the first entry. It instantly struck me as something that might be squarely at home on a martian - or future human - landscape.
