Today is the first day of Spring – THANK GOODNESS, right? Like most everyone else I had a heavy dose of winter this year. Traveling deep into the Rocky Mountains followed immediately by a quick trip to the ice cap that is Chicago, Illinois made me 100% ready for winter to be over! I will have to say thought, that I enjoyed by winter trips immensely. When I finally arrived in Aspen, Colorado after 7 hours on a bus (FROM DENVER, normally a 3 hour trip), I realized that I had forgot my Holga camera. Which was a small little tragedy for me. But with the help of Amazon Prime, I was able to get a new one within a few days. Overnight delivery turned into a few days. But given that we were sitting in the middle of the worst (best?) snowstorm in 30 years, I wasn’t complaining. Fun fact: we got 24 inches in 24 hours. It was AMAZING.
I was a little unsure about shooting with the new camera without being able to do a test roll to see how the light leaks were on this particular one. But I decided I didn’t have a choice and went ahead and shot with it anyway. For those of you who are familiar with Holga cameras, you’ll know what I mean. For those who are not familiar, I’ll just say you’re about to see a few b/w photos shot with a plastic camera.
Everyday was basically a blizzard so I have some very cold & snowy photos. The camera is actually pretty tight, so I will be fussing with it to make it a bit less predictable.
And now, it’s Friday and 80 degrees in Austin, Texas and I’m not working this weekend. SO, TGIF I say! TGIF.
