2nd Holga Beach Shots

beach shots #5 for 2
*Squeeel* look at the pretty colours!

So here’s another post with some shots I uploaded from my new Holga. You can see my first post here. I can not get over the colours and vintag-y feel this camera gives, as well as the blacked out corners. Whenever I go through this first roll of film I have such an urge to try and recapture it through my oil paintings. That would be tricky! Maybe once I finally finish Marilyn.

This next shot is the very first double exposure I have ever taken. Hopefully you can tell what it is! If not, it’s of the lines in the sand and the clouds in the sky.

1st Holga Beach Shots

Beach shots #2 for 1
Today I was going to upload a photograph of my new camera that Emma gave me, so I could tell you all about it but Andi borrowed my cable so I can’t put them on the computer or “puter” as Cookie would call it.

So instead, I have some photos of what this little baby can do! I am absolutely in love with this camera and my first roll of film.

Andi and I went on a road trip over the holidays and found this pretty spot. I am so happy with the pictures I was able to take here. I have such a love of taking photos of boats!

Here’s a pic I got of the magnificent Andi. I think I may need to frame this one! It’s gorgeous!

kites #1
For Christmas, Andi and I bought Cookie and Chicken some kites. Chicken, here got a purple butterfly and Cookie got a big red Lady Bird. We had a great day flying them at the park but unfortunately Cookies’ kite wasn’t having much luck staying in the air.
These are a couple of shots I took with the new toy camera I was given by the lovely Emma. (You should check out her site here, she is a professional photographer and takes amazing shots).

I have pretty much fallen in love with my new camera, but I’ll tell you more about that later. For now I will leave you with a shot of Cookie, idly waiting for a turn. What a good girl.

Weeds are Flowers Too

Yesterday I went out to take some photos at the top of the hill, amongst the native trees and the naughty weeds.
