Hey everyone,

I sent mine out yesturday. Not the best image ever, but I'm having a lint problem with my Holga (didn't realize it till it was too late!). Something about the image did make me laugh a lot, though.

I received Dianna's and Pete's already, thanks!! Both are great images, and Pete's reminded me that I can and should do double images on my Holga. Looking forward to see the others!

I don't know the man...I followed him off the train, since he got off at my stop. I walked past him and set up as if I were shooting the river and let him walk into the frame. The double exposure on the bottom right is from the shutter not completely blocking the opening on its return. The man had moved on by then, so you can see the railing that had been behind him.
He is crossing the Charles River on Moody Street in Waltham, Mass.
The film was developed in Diafine, and is probably Tri-X, but may have been Neopan.

Whew!

I just got back from mailing all the photos. To make up for the delay I sent an extra goodie :)

Alan,

I got your print yesterday. Wow. I feel like I understand exactly what that horse was thinking when you took the shot.

Lauren,

I got yours yesterday as well. I laughed out loud when I opened the envelope- the look on that man's face is priceless!

Got Lauren's photo today. Now my son wants one of those bubble makers.

OK, folks, let's get those prints mailed out...the time has arrived!LOL! Here I am harping about deadbeats and I haven't sent mine out yet! I have them now mounted, boxed and ready to send.

I have recieved great prints from:

Dianna: The irony of Dianna taking a pic with a Holga! LOL

PhotoPete: The mood of the pic is fantastic. I like the blurry background. The fact he is a 'ghost' image as well adds to the image significantly.

Ksiti: Certainly is an interesting pic. A problem with your Holga - like light leaks, fuzzy lens, out of focus inconsistency, winding inconsistency, etc...? If it's any or all of these, it's working fine!

Alan: Nice pic of the boy with the bubbles.

Thanks, Art.

I think that one might have been Lauren's. My print was the dirty white winter horse.

I also realize I didn't include any info with my print or an explanation of the sticker I sent as an extra. I used a Diana F with Kodak Porta 400 VC. I took the picture about three weeks ago. The sticker is a thing from my actual profession (illustrator/designer). My wife thinks it's creepy but I think it's funny and kinda cute. Go to my site if you want to see more (www.MenacingTourist.com). If it's not your thing then just give it to a teenager or stick it on the nearest stop sign or street pole. Just don't get caught :)

Yes, the guy with the bubbles was mine. I still have all of the above, though: Light leaks, warped image, bizzarre focusing. I love all these things. The problem was that the flocking I used on the inside to prevent the film from scratching on the plastic sides has been shedding. The result has been black lint marks on my images. This one that I sent is the only print of my recent shots that have been missing that.

I received Alan's, and, although I'm a black and white girl, I was very excited to see a color image. I've also never seen a Dianna photograph in person before! Such soft focusing, it is a really beautiful image. As far as the sticker, both my boyfriend and I got a kick out of it. It is now on my bike.

The Bird Baby is a very odd thing. I have no idea how people will react to it. Some who I think would love it don't, while others who I think won't like it really do. I'm always suprised by the reaction. Just remember it is in no way a personal statement...that would be creepy.

I want a bubble machine like the one in Lauren's pic! Also enjoyed Alan's horse pic, not sure about the baby bird thingy... (it was Valentines Day yesterday!!!)

Whew! I just came back from the post office. Prints from my Pentax 110 just went....so sorry for the delay. As I mentioned in my letters, I'm not sure a Pentax 110 is a Toy Camera or not, but I fgured, I'd give it a try.

I did as well...I meant to drop a note here, but forgot. I liked the mailbox one, and especially the idea of re-photographing your son's pictures.

I got Art's print a day or so ago. Pretty neat.
No worries on wether the 110 is a toy or not. Any camera that uses film cartreges like that must be a toy.

Hi:
I've recently ordered a Holga and look forward to actually using the camera.
I would be interested in this print exchange if it is still in operation.
I wouldn't mind sharing with 4 or 5 others if that was possible.
