North Bay

I am constantly in awe the kinds of images that can be produced with this piece of crap, plastic camera. The Holga 120N is quickly becoming a favourite of mine. The only real issue I have with it is the amount of black tape I have to put all over the camera to stop light…

Cambridge Mill Through a Holga

This is the probably the longest I’ve gone before developing a roll of film. Usually, I like to develop within a couple days/weeks of shooting. I just developed this roll today which I started back at the beginning of September. I totally forgot what was even on the roll… so it was kind of a…

Lang Grist Mill and Hope Mill

We had a party for our youngest at the local recreation centre on December 16th and only one person from his class was able to attend.…

A Couple More Shots From Ottawa

I had totally forgot that I broke out the Olympus XA to shoot some photos the last day in our recent Ottawa vacation. It wasn’t until I developed the film, that it all came back to me. The joys of shooting film I guess. Below are some shots from in and around Parliament Hill.
