Bad Girl

So, I utterly failed in my year-long goal to buy nothing new for myself. I've had tiny failures, such as the occasional .99 for a new song on iTunes, but I've not bought any new camera equipment or clothes or any "fun'' stuff. Till now. My friend moved away yesterday and I just felt a deep need for a pick-me-up.  So I bought this:

Yes, it's a HOLGA, a silly, plastic toy camera that originally came from China, but oh, the stuff you can do with it if you learn its quirky ways. I've been curious about it ever since I found a photoshop action years ago that makes digital photos look "holga" style . I was at the camera store looking at one of the Fujifilm Instax instant film cameras but it was HUGE and the film is 20 bucks for 10 exposures, so I decided to pass on that. Maybe sometime I'll get the smaller version. But now I want to play with my Holga.  I'm looking forward to trying some things with it this weekend and next week at camp. I'll make sure and put some images up here.

  1. Fun!! (And I don't like a year of buying new things--one month wasn't enough??) I'm glad you got it and can't wait to see some things.
